Elizabeth Ledoux, Founder and Lead Strategist of The Transition Strategists, has written books on a range of topics related to business success and entrepreneurial fulfillment. Her insightful work is a valued resource for owners of family businesses and private enterprises, entrepreneurs, researchers, and consultants.

For business owners, the once-in-a-lifetime event of transition can be a joyful and inspiring culmination of a lifetime of hard work and dedication. Or it can be tumultuous and emotionally complex, causing conflict and riffs in relationships. We prefer the former.

  • Communicate compassionately and effectively even in difficult situations
  • Resolve dilemmas to achieve the outcomes you desire

  • Assess various succession strategies
  • Calculate how much you need to live the next chapter of your life
  • Install a form of corporate governance that replaces unspoken rules
  • Create wins for yourself, your successors, family and company
