Why is it so challenging to give up active management of your company? Insights from neuroscience
In many cases selling or buying a company is much more complicated than selling/buying real estate. Do you agree with the statement?
In many cases owning a business is like bringing up a child. Through the life of the business, you have nurtured it, learned lessons through trial and error, taken risks, implemented processes and made growth decisions for its well-being and success. You may have employed other people, providing a safe home for them to create a good life for themselves and in return, they have given you loyal service. You have positive relationships with both employees and satisfied clients of which you are rightly proud.
Business owners often share that their identity is linked to the business and years of hard work, vision, development and success have enabled personal growth as well as business growth. It is therefore not surprising that handing over the reins to another owner or leader comes with some emotions and can be challenging.
DATE AND TIME
27th of October 2021 from 2 PM until 3.30 PM on Zoom
Participation is free of charge, pre-registration is required
Come and join the webinar and you’ll learn about:
- What’s the role of emotions while making decisions in business life;
- Learning from neuroscience, we will examine how transferring business ownership can result in feelings of loss and an “empty nest”, just like when children move away from home;
- What different frames of reference can be applied to view the transfer as an opportunity for reinvention and challenge traditional paradigms;
- What do larger organizations which adopt a succession-based approach do and with this mapping develop ideas to bring into smaller businesses.
