Join the Smith Family Business Initiative as we host “Connected Conversations”, a bi-monthly webinar series that explores topics relevant to family business owners, members, advisors, students, and alumni. We invite you to join us as we navigate the current uncertainty in our global economy, and its impacts on family businesses. 

On May 6 from 12-1pm EDT, John Engels, Founder and President of Engels Leadership Coaching, will lead a discussion on “Managing Anxiety: At Home, In Business.” He will share insight on how to advance emotional maturity and self-responsibility to improve thinking, make smarter decisions, and deepen relationships.

How does the anxiety inside us and around us fake us out?  How can we tell whether the threat we experience from massive inconvenience and relationship disruption is based on reality or imagination?  Understanding how anxiety affects outcomes poses one of the great challenges of leadership.  Cornell Family Business Scholar and leadership coach John Engels explores the effects of anxiety on work and family relationships, and how parents and business leaders can bring greater maturity, clarity and poise to "twitchy situations." 

Please submit questions you would like John Engels to address in advance of the webinar to Hannah Barends at
