“Helping me achieve my most recent promotion to Senior Vice President”

I worked closely with Ron for a little over a year during one of my many career transitions… He always had great insights. More than a coach, Ron served as a mentor for me, each conversation was natural, and I always left each one with a new perspective on the challenge of the day. I know he was instrumental in helping me achieve the next level in my career both personally in my leadership style… but also figuratively with my most recent promotion to Senior Vice President. Thanks again Ron!

Inter-generational Succession Planning

Groom Your Successor and Future-Proof Your Business

An investment in succession planning brings with it many rewards. Business preparedness. A way forward. Peace of mind.  But it can do a great deal more than that.

With the right consultant advising you, succession planning can also serve to engage and drive loyalty in the talented professionals (or heirs to your business) coming up the corporate ladder. It serves to empower your successors, groom them for leadership – even endear them to your vision, making them more likely to follow in your stead.

Through succession planning and leadership coaching, you can prepare a successor of your choice to stay the course, where they may otherwise have veered away, and made another career choice. And this gives you peace of mind that your business in on track and in good hands.

Overcoming the challenges of family-run business success planning

Succession planning is especially challenging within family-run businesses.

  • What if your son or daughter holds a different vision for your company?
  • What if they want to sell?
  • What if you have reached an impasse on the future of the company that seems impossible to resolve?

How can you bridge the gap and ensure both generations get back on the same team with a positive path forward? We can help.

Ron Bremner brings special expertise in consulting with family businesses on inter-generational succession planning. His easy-going but determined style combined with his ability to get to the heart of the tough issues has helped many companies tackle tough succession planning issues. He is able to break down silos, improve communication and safeguard businesses for a prosperous future.
