The presentation will explore some of the most common psychological barriers or emotional constraints business owners face as they face a transition out of a position of leadership and ownership. Often these barriers or distractions can trigger procrastination, confusion or mixed-messaging, and an overall lack of clear, consistent direction within ownership transition and management succession planning process.
