you work in a start-up or major corporation, a family-owned enterprise,
or a non-profit organization, you need confidence in your capacity
to lead your team and to enroll those around you in your vision
often have sector expertise and limited leadership experience.
Developing a product, creating a team, searching for capital,
— that’s a tall order involving time pressure, few
resources, stakeholders with different agendas. Among unmet needs
are guidance on managing relationships, clarity in seeing
their own areas for growth, and support in remaining resilient
over a long time horizon.
High-potential leaders in dynamic corporate
environments often find that their mandates change as
they advance. The skills that created success must expand to include
managing others, communicating a vision, thinking strategically
and often leading through transitions.
managers have great passion for their mission and are
masterful at stretching their resources. They are challenged to
stay focused and be opportunistic at the same time. They must
walk the fine line between fulfilling their funders’ wishes
and implementing their own plans to execute on the mission.
Family members who work together
navigate the tension of required togetherness and the in-born
desire to evolve as individuals. In times of leadership transition,
the complexity of the relationships amplifies stress and family
cohesion can be at stake. New leaders may have a difficult
time stepping out on their own.
