High Center Holds Breakfast Seminar
The High Center for Family Business will hold a breakfast seminar for Center members and guests from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Thursday, March 14, 2013 on the Elizabethtown College campus. Gerard Donnellan, Ph.D., presents an interactive workshop “What About Thanksgiving Dinner” to discuss three dynamics—avoiding conflict; a flawed decision-making process; and the deadly trio of favoritism, entitlement and incompetence—that impact all family businesses. To register, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-361-1275.
Gerard J. Donnellan, Ph.D., works with family businesses to create an enduring family legacy by focusing on what is important to them: their relationships, their values, and their history. He guides the family to consider, evaluate and work through difficult questions so they may make wise decisions about themselves, their children, and their business and philanthropic endeavors. He collaborates closely with the advisors to these families by providing consultation, education and development activities to both advisors and their clients.
Donnellan has more than 35 years' experience as a clinical psychologist and consultant to families and businesses, and is a recognized leader in the field of family business advising. He is an adjunct professor at The International Business School, Brandeis University, MA, where he teaches the masters of business administration course, The Family Enterprise. He also has shared his experiences in his book “Who Will Drive the Bus? Guidance for Developing Leaders in the Family Enterprise” and was a contributor to “Sink or Swim: How Lessons from the Titanic Can Save Your Family Business.”
