Family business coaching helps families navigate the challenges of a family business and enhance personal and professional relationships through improved role definition, communication and conflict resolution skills.
What is Family Business Coaching?
A family business is a journey with many transitions that require understanding, adaptability, sound structures and processes, patience and resilience.
Coaching can help your family make transitions of generation and culture by mapping the stages, and by proactively setting structures, processes and channels in place to plan smooth succession, improve relationships and invest in the development of the next generation.
Who Can Benefit?
Most family businesses flounder or fail not because of a flaw in their service or product, but because of the failure of family members to properly attend to their roles, relationships, blind spots and communication channels.
Are you like most families, bringing dysfunctional communication and conflict styles into the workplace? Do you understand that this is just a question of reading the current dynamics and learning new skills?
Are you going through a transition from Generation 1 to 2, or Gen 2 to 3? Is the older generation hanging onto the reins for too long? Are the younger family members eager and ready to assume more responsibility? Has everyone bought into the vision?
Is the business expanding or downsizing in size or scope? Is there no clearly defined succession plan? Are you not investing in the members of the next generation? Would you like to more effectively leverage each member’s unique strengths?
If your answer to any of the above questions is 'yes', then Family Business Coaching may be a good fit for you.
