Avoiding the Ditch: Keeping Your Family Business Communication On Track

Are you ready to improve communication within your family business?

Difficult conversations are inevitable in family business. How communication is handled among family members can determine the overall effect of these conversations; will the family bond ultimately strengthen, or will there be lasting negative effects on the business? How do we end up “stuck” in communication “ditches” where communication breaks down and relationships suffer, and if we find ourselves there, how do we get back to constructive conversation? In addition to happier family relationships, it makes good financial sense for a family business to strengthen family harmony. According to Ernst & Young, as much as 35% of return on equity can be impacted by family cohesion and branding. 

This session will provide tools and techniques that attendees can use right away to cultivate better communication among family members, employees, and shareholders.
