Conflict is natural in every family business, and at times healthy. We help you form your defenses against negative conflict and foster positive disagreements
Alignment and Communication
Families grow over time, and the roles held by family members in the family enterprise become more diverse. This presents new challenges for business families, as individuals holding different roles often have different interests and priorities. Communication between family members becomes increasingly difficult due to cultural, emotional, structural, or procedural reasons. Effective communication is key for preventing conflict and legal disputes, but it is difficult without a moderator.
Common questions that business families face
Our work on building alignment and enhancing communication helps families understand the sources and nature of misalignment, understand the normal nature of differences, and identify the best ways to deal with differences in a constructive manner.
