It’s harder because it’s more complex. After all, you are navigating two separate yet interwoven systems, the business and the family system.
Business families can get stuck, feel overwhelmed or find themselves dealing with what seem to be insurmountable problems. Fortunately, there are a lot of experts out there offering support or solutions.
These are just some of them.
There is a lot of professional help out there. But how do you know what kind your family business really needs?
Before you make an appointment with anyone, it’s important to be able to clearly answer two key questions:
1. What issues is your family business currently facing?
2. What do you envision for the future of your family business?
And because that can be a difficult first step, let me help you sort that out.
I am a family business coach and I help family business leaders dig to answer these two difficult questions.
Armed with that kind of clarity, the next step is to uncover what is might be getting int the way. What family dynamics, what beliefs or self limiting thinking is keeping your family business from moving forward in the ideal direction.
Armed with that kind of clarity, it’s easy to determine what is next and which kind of expert to call upon for the help exact kind of help you need.
The truth is that family business issues are so complex that you might need a few different experts at the same time.
