Thriving During Corporate Climate Changes – For C-Suite Executives
Recorded On: 04/26/2022
While company acquisitions are exciting and a time for overall growth, they can also be challenging. Management must lead their newly acquired teams in order to keep employee morale and productivity high.
If your company is, or planning to, acquire another company, it’s important to know the challenges you may face and how to instill confidence and security among employees due to the change.
C-Suite executives are invited to re-watch Wade Kawasaki as he discusses the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN) focus on helping corporate leaders thrive during change. Kawasaki has years of experience starting and building multiple aftermarket companies. He shared:
- What challenges to expect during an acquisition. Many small companies’ employees have been there since the beginning and are very protective. This can be a difficult and personal transaction that should be acknowledged.
- How to avoid or overcome challenges during change. Kawasaki will share how he has navigated a family business with long-term employees and helped them adapt to a very different corporate structure.
- How to obtain control of the acquired company at an executive level – from leading the acquisition team, new stakeholders, existing management, and existing staff.
