Abstract

In order to survive, family businesses must generate strategies to achieve some continuity; therefore, the designation and legitimation of leadership, as well as the desirable attributes for the successor, emerge as the main ones to develop. The objective of the present study is to analyse the types of leadership and the chosen desirable attributes for the succession process. It was applied 144 questionnaires to executives and employees from tourist organizations of service, commerce and industry in the northwestern region of Mexico.  It was based on a Likert scale type (1 to 5), including sections about leadership (conformed by five dimensions) and the desirable attributes of the successor (conformed by two dimensions). The main findings emphasize that the leadership, within the family enterprise, before, during and after the succession process, in the first four generations, present a constant of importance in the presence of the different types: expert, referential and laissez faire/mission and the administrative attributes; contrary to the participatory leadership, that it decreases and the autocratic increases; as well as the family attributes do so as they go from one successor stage to another. To enrich the subject of study, it is recommended the inclusion of different aspects related to the Latin American context and the generation of inferences with new elements such as motivational profiles, labor stressors, interactions of Latino families, among others. All of this in order to try to map the family business.
