We just completed another Fundamentals of Family Business Success program with a family group this week…it’s so great to see families expand their business tool kit and have some real conversations about the family dynamics that can destroy a good business.
As the coach, I provide real time live coaching to teach the family how to talk straight with each other.
Let me know if you want to talk to this week’s family about what they got out of the program or if we can help you and your family grow some new muscle in this interactive and engaging coaching program.
Enjoy this week’s bracket of family business articles.
