How are you Communicating with the Next Generation?

FamilyInCornFieldLack of effective communication among family members is the root cause of most family business failures. Effective communication between parents and their adult children is essential to a mutually satisfying transfer of a legacy from one generation to the next.

Join us for a discussion on communication and to begin thinking more about how you are communicating with the next generation. Do your communication skills include questioning, listening, explaining, and reflecting? What is your strategy for resolving conflicts? Are you familiar with the practice of forgiveness? How do you communicate as a family, as a business?

Join us for a live webinar, on Friday, February 10th at 12:00 Eastern/11:00 Central/10:00 Mountain/9:00 Pacific.

How Are You Mentoring the Next Generation?

While the mentor can be older or younger than the mentee, they must have a specific expertise which qualifies them?

Join us for a discussion on mentoring and to begin thinking more about how you are mentoring the next generation. Does the mentee drive the process? Are you using a formal approach to keep the mentoring relationship on track? Is there an expectation that everyone will “get along?” Have you considered the 6 steps to a mentoring relationship?

What is your Ag legacy?

threefarmersWe often refer to life as the school of hard knocks. These experiences, both good and bad, lead to lessons learned, which in turn shape who you are and often influence future decisions. In agriculture, these are the experiences that shape your operation, and together, become your Ag legacy.

Join us for a discussion on what an Ag legacy is and to begin thinking more on your own Ag legacy. What are you doing to preserve and pass it on to the  next generation? What more is there than creating a will and taking care of the financial side of the estate? What about the day to day management skills? Those hard earned lessons?
