Guiding family businesses through change

Advancing family businesses with trusted advice and structured plans.

Family businesses have advantages over other businesses. The relationships within the business between parents and children, siblings and spouses, means that members of family businesses often have shared values, common goals, personal investment and are committed to long term prosperity.

But family businesses can also be very complex, particularly if there are complicated interpersonal relationships and differing interests.

Founders want to protect the legacy they have built. It’s equally as important for successors to make their own mark and achieve their own success.

Transitioning a business between family members can be more challenging than selling the business to an unrelated buyer. That’s where the objective guidance from a Tenfold business coach can help.

Explore what’s possible for your family business with Tenfold’s coaching services.

Our business coach team provide practical advice across all functions of the business including marketing, financial management, service delivery and operations. At the strategic level, your Tenfold business coach assists with:

  • Guidance on how to calculate the value of the business;
  • Review the current ownership structure and provide support for partnership agreements and buy/sell agreements;

  • Facilitate agreement and accountability for the change of ownership;

  • Roadmap of the handover so there is a clear plan of what needs to be done, by who and by when;
  • If the founding business owners want to retain a shareholding in the business, we establish an advisory group with reporting mechanisms;

  • Coaching for the new leaders of the business on big picture goals and strategic planning; financial management, team leadership;

  • Succession planning to facilitate an equitable and respectful transition to the new leaders;

  • Big picture planning and direction for the next chapter of business growth
