Reconciling relationships and preserving the family business: tools for success
This book is designed as a survival guide for people involved in family businesses, where personal issues can mix with financial interdependencies and work grievances to cause professional failures that are independent of bad management, market conditions, or financial constraints. Studies show that more than two-thirds of family-owned businesses don't survive past the first generation -- and most business enterprises in the United States are owned by families. Written by the founders of the Carmel Institute for Family Business, this unique book presents a comprehensive model for reconciling fractured relationships within the business-owning family. Reconciling Relationships and Preserving the Family Business examines pressing issues of business-owning families, including the basic principles of relationships in business-owning families; individual dynamics that account for human dilemmas; power issues; effective intervention in troubled relationships; assessing relationship patterns; family structure and process; roles, responsibilities, and ethics of advisors working with family-owned businesses; and much more.
