being realistic about working with
Family business are notoriously problematic. Just say the words "family business" and you are
likely to elicit raised eyebrows and a knowing roll of the sight. Many families kill the actual goose
that lays the actual golden eggs by doing power struggles, resentment, and also poor planning. It
is far more common for emotional difficulties to ruin the business compared to poor business
conditions. Everybody knows working with family is difficult, but few know where to turn to
mitigate the risks and increase the odds of success.
At least 50% of family-owned businesses do not be successful through the 2nd generation.
Entrepreneurs are often very independent and don't rely on outside advice. Installed off naming a
replacement, beneficiary and minimize complaints as well as conflict from family members. They
think they beat the odds once, and figure they'll do it again. It is easy to underestimate the
problems inherent in mixing loved ones values with business facts and families tend to overlook
problems until they acquire so big they are unmanageable.
Transitioning family members into the company and dealing with leadership sequence is a very
difficult process which usually entrepreneurs often don't have the particular skill to navigate. The
abilities and traits to build a successful business are different from the skills and traits needed to
identify as well as manage a long leadership sequence plan. Their advisors, we. e. lawyers and
accounting firm, are not trained to deal with the emotional issues that plague family members.
Because family business trouble is often interpersonal and intractable, families believe there is no
solution and that they must "live with" the awkward discomfort or perhaps just-underneath-thesurface tension. They resolution their teeth and hope it will eventually go away. Unfortunately, as
has been documented in many books (a good recent publication is actually a book on the
Mondavi family), the troubles don't disappear and instead escalate into expensive conflict and
lawsuits. Regrettably, this unresolved conflict may drain the family fortune, mess up the business,
and permanently destruction or destroy family human relationships.
But it doesn't have to be by doing this; there is a wellspring of knowledge as well as support.
A growing body of materials, research and a community associated with practice have been
emerging in neuro-scientific family business. Many colleges have Family Business Centers where
business-owning families can learn from each other. In Chicago, il, there are at least 5 such
centers associated with major colleges. These centers can be a wealth of information where
families can learn about academic research and meet other families that are struggling with the
The difficulties of family business can be extremely complex and unique, a fresh field has
emerged, called "Family Business Advising". Family members business advisers come from the
job areas of law, finance, mindsets, and organizational development, and share knowledge to
create much better solutions. If you are looking for an consultant make sure he/she has the
knowledge and specialized training needed to address the unique needs associated with family
businesses and the "family business advisor" designation. As the company and family grow, it
might be necessary to have a current and broad knowledge base and have interaction the experts
needed to succeed.
Being successful in a family business can be extremely difficult. But with the right guidance, it can
be uniquely rewarding and provide any venue to carry your family's values into future generations
and make a positive contribution in order to society.
