Even the most successful CEOs don’t operate and/or live in a vacuum. Healthy nurturing relationships in a family lead to healthy nurturing businesses – and vice versa. Whether a family unit is small, nuclear and directly involved in the family business, or more extended and widespread, its effectiveness can directly influence the effectiveness and future of a business. Even more so against the backdrop of 21st century challenges.
21st century leadership requirements
Successful CEOs today are likely to have been strongly influenced by the command and control era of industrializing and scaling for global growth. They may be action-oriented, business-driven and potential-seeking individuals. They probably lead from the front, focusing on the ‘what’ more than the ‘why’ and the ‘how’.
Effective family heads and CEOs today are embracing 21st century leadership techniques together with Forum principles. They are nurturing and growing their family members (and their employees) into a generation of individuals who are empowered & accountable, authentic & highly passionate and who will have the potential to impact the world in ways that are positive and that they can be proud of, professionally and personally.
