More precisely, the research aim was to determine the salient attributes required for effective leadership in each stage of the companies' life-cycle development. To achieve that, a qualitative research approach was conducted and data was sourced using in-depth interviews with the founders of the two family-owned businesses; in this case Godam and FK-Komerc. The interviews were based on IIOSS questionnaires and were equally distributed among the CEO's and some previously identified co-workers within the companies.
