Crafting A Role For The Next Generation With Steve Legler
Steve was a guest of Family Business United in the UK.
Join us for a conversation with Steve Legler, a leading family business consultant with plenty of experience on all things ‘family business.’
Steve was born into a family business, and as the only son of an immigrant entrepreneur, it became clear very early on, that he was expected to follow in his Dad’s footsteps. So every summer of his teens and the first three years of his working life after university were spent learning everything he could about the business. He returned again after getting his MBA, more ready than ever for the challenges that awaited him.
But then, unexpectedly, within six months, the business was sold to a competitor, and went from 250 people to only four. And two of them went by the name Steve Legler!
Steve learned a lot about business from his Dad, furthered his formal education along the way and also married into a business family. He has seen some of the communications challenges that they have faced over the years and now realises more than ever how important good communication is for families who want their legacy to continue, as it is transferred to future generations.
There are plenty of people advising family businesses about their business issues, but the area that causes so much concern, in so many family businesses is not the business, but the family.
Steve has some very unique qualifications to help people take control of those important issues and will share some of his learnings with us as we discuss all things related to the next generation.
