Joseph Horak, PhD
Do you need help resolving conflict? Building a succession plan that will succeed? Or developing effective leadership plans for the next generation? I have provided family business consultation and leadership coaching for over three decades. I currently am an Entrepreneur in Residence and Honorary Teaching Fellow at the Family Enterprise Center at Lancaster University’s Management School (LUMS) in the United Kingdom. LUMS is ranked in the top 1 % of management schools globally. I was previously the Director of the Family Owned Business Institute at the Seidman College of Business at Grand Valley State University where I taught family business courses for 8 years. I also have taught graduate level courses in family therapy at Wayne State University and Western Michigan University. I usually begin by developing an assessment to determine the areas that are in need of change and will then provide a clear plan as to how things can change both in your family and your business. I am not just a licensed psychologist, but also have completed a Certificate in Business Strategy from Harvard Business School Executive Education in 2018. I also have taken MBA courses and taught in business schools. So in my approach, I work to improve both the family and business at the same time. I also am certified in the Leadership Circle Profile Model a state of the art 360 leadership assessment tool used by many Fortune 500 companies.
