"Family business dynamics can be tricky - even a simple issue can escalate into a major problem that can ruin family relationships and hurt the family's business," notes Schwerzler.
If you are a family business owner, or a member of a family in business together, and you are being confronted by tough issues - we can help.
"Fight or Flee" are two basic instincts hard wired into our brains. Family business owners have to deal with another instinct - to "freeze" - to hope that if they wait long enough, troubling issues will resolve themselves and the owner can return to when the business ran well and the family enjoyed peace and harmony.
"Family business problems rarely go away when they are not addressed - just the opposite, the problems tend to get worse and end up wrecking family relationships and destroying the business," says Schwerzler.
Taking advantage of an opportunity to talk with an experienced and trusted family business expert can be the first step to resolving the problems that are hurting your business and creating disharmony in your family. Why wait? We can help!
