0 Reviews
Families in business share a rich blend of experience and history that can empower or encumber them.  Though an investigative look at familial interactions, the authors highlight normal conflicts, criticisms, and communications failures that are a part of the family experience as well as their effects on working relationships within the enterprise.  Understanding these problems leads to the development of family professionals that seek healthy working relationships based on honest communication.
