The purpose of this workshop is to develop skills that improve relationships and communication within families. You will be set practical tasks that help towards improving your daily relationships. You will learn, through real-life case studies, how multi-national, family-owned businesses have flourished using concepts and tools of Family Business coaching.
Research shows that the main reason for wealth loss in families is ineffective communication. The development of communication skills is an opportunity to observe what is happening and better understand it. You will learn to communicate in new ways and create a deeper understanding of your family’s needs. This will facilitate smoother, more productive management of your organization. Often, we find it hard to hear and understand what others want to convey. What is said and how is just as important as what is not expressed.
In this interactive and experiential workshop, you will learn skills that help you become more familiar with your family dynamic. This will include discerning the emotional patterns that enable you to observe what is happening rather than taking situations personally. Statistics show that the main reason family businesses do not reach past the second generation is due to conflicts in the management of the family, not in the management of the business.
