Managing a business is tough, but running a family owned business is even tougher. Internal conflicts, family matters, business concerns, and ownership transition make running the business very complicated and emotionally charged. The causes are usually the same - an inability to separate family from business needs, conflicts of interests, differences of opinion in how the business should be managed, rivalries, and often egos that come into play. Yet, there are many businesses that have established strong working relationships with family members and employees. These businesses are growing and prospering. This presentation will provide you with all the do’s and don’ts in family owned businesses.
