In this episode, Greg McCann of McCann & Associates and I dive into the family enterprise model, vertical leadership development, and leadership agility. Greg worked in his family’s business for a number of years before teaching at Stetson University and starting their Family Enterprise Center. In addition to teaching, Greg has worked as a family enterprise consultant for nearly two decades.
In this podcast, Greg gives us a mini-course on the four leadership agilities, which include self-awareness, empathy, framing, and innovation. We discuss the six stages that leaders go through, which run along a continuum from efficient to effective. Greg also shared with us that leaders at the top of the scale (the most effective) tend to do three things daily:
- They have a reflective or meditative practice
- They exercise
- They have a creative practice outside of work. (Cool thing about Greg: His creative practice outside of work is gift giving!)

In response, I ask how do people become available to themselves and the other people in their lives? —Greg McCann #successfulgenerations If you are not developing the leadership capacity of your family, you are putting them in unnecessary risk. —Greg McCann #successfulgenerations We’re really good at running our businesses, but not so good at anticipating change. How do we pivot and see the next thing coming? —Greg McCann #successfulgenerations Imagine saying, ‘I want to get in shape, so once a year I go away with my family and hear a fitness expert speak.’ That doesn’t work. —Greg McCann #successfulgenerations In a family business you’re putting your main relationships and the majority of your wealth at risk. Doing that casually is too much of a risk. —Greg McCann #successfulgenerations Resources mentioned in this episode:
