Entrepreneurship Programs

Training for Success

Nearly all successful family businesses are rooted in incredible stories of entrepreneurial success. During generational transition, the challenge becomes maintaining the entrepreneurial spirit: How do you foster an entrepreneurial mindset among members of the next generation?

You may also be seeing new competitors threatening your legacy – disruptive business models are becoming more common – and for any family business to survive it must remain innovative and driven by entrepreneurship.

At GTA we believe – and know from experience – that entrepreneurial thinking and drive can be developed in individuals. We specialize in creating bespoke entrepreneur development programs for family businesses. Our programs provide a powerful combination of coaching for aspiring entrepreneurs and group education.

Through our entrepreneurship programs, we will:

  • Foster individual growth and development; build confidence and independence in the next generation
  • Cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset so the next generation can be independent and contribute to new areas of growth for the family enterprise
  • Educate the next generation on collaboration: building their sense of team and connection to each other while enhancing their effectiveness as future owners and officers
  • Connect entrepreneurial ideas to the family businesses

It is a long and challenging path for the next generation to become a high-performing team and earn their positions in ownership and leadership. Shortening that path is the goal of our training. We’ve developed a comprehensive approach to developing next generation teamwork and professional skills through in-depth assessment, one-on-one coaching, group education, and leadership development.

We live in times of unprecedented change.

New entrants are pushing innovative products and services into the market

Disruption is a universal constant

New business models are being established that are disrupting entire businesses

Uncertainty creates opportunity

Family businesses need to be strategic about embracing entrepreneurship internally and externally

As business families grow and transform into family enterprises, we observe a growing desire – partially triggered by market shifts, disruptive trends - a decreasing interest in the next generation to “just” take over the legacy business and to be more entrepreneurial.
