1. Our Managing Director Announces -

Since the September 11th attack on the United States, personal and business security have become topics of concern for every family business owner.

In "Family Business First", meet private investigator Harold Copus. Borrowing the idea from our popular Family Business Profile series, we're starting a series based on Harold's Private Investigations.

The first story deals with corporate identity theft and its prevention, and we also have an interesting and helpful item on personal identity theft protection.

We continue with the Leadership Practices series, since these practices are the foundation for the processes that must be in place in order to achieve success.

Reminder: We've developed a couple of quick diagnostic assessments to help you. They are both fr*ee [at least for a while] and we try to deliver 48 hour turnaround of our analysis. Try them!

The Holonomic Top Down Assessment asks you about a combination of the 12 Main Enabling Processes that an effective organization has to have operating in order to achieve the 6 Desired Organizational Characteristics of effective organizations. Where your assessment indicates one or more of these are not working in your organization, we'll feed back suggestions as to the underlying Leadership Practices that might not be working.

Take our fr*ee Holonomic Top Down Assessment to see what underlying practices might be at fault and causing problem symptoms in your family business .

Diagnosing from the other direction - Bottom-Up - we ask you to identify which of 29 Leadership Practices aren't present or working. From that, we point you to Enabling Processes and thus Desired Characteristics that probably aren't functioning.

Take our fr*ee assessment on the 29 Leadership Practices to see how they affect your family business.



Whether to contribute, challenge (or hopefully even praise) our newsletter, I encourage you to contact me directly Don, or our editor David.
Enjoy, and here's wishing you, your family, your clients... much success!

Don Schwerzler, Managing Director Family Business Experts



2. Business first family...Family first business:

Private Investigations

Since the September 11th attack on the United States, personal and business security have become topics of concern for every family business owner.

Our family business security expert is private investigator Harold Copus, a former Special Agent with the FBI. You may be familiar with Harold as he appears frequently as an expert commentator on security issues for the Fox Cable News Network. Harold recently was recognized on the Dr Phil show for his work in finding run-away children. In fact, Harold was asked to attend the White House ceremony when the Amber Alert legislation was signed into law by President Bush.

We have launched a new security initiative that details actual cases that Harold and his team of security experts have solved. We hope in providing these case studies subscribers to UFB will gain a better understanding and a higher sensitivity to the fact that many people and situations are not what they appear to be!
