“Don’t confuse family strategy with the strategy of the business – they are intertwined but different”.
It is critical when focusing on the strategy of the business to understand the direction of the family. Underpinning the direction of the family are the family values of which can comprise of values across generations. Determining family values requires a structured approach that considers the values set by the business, family as a whole and the individual.
Known as a difficult balancing act for any family business, this adviser connect breakfast will leave you with knowledge on:
- The importance and difference of family v’s business values.
- Steps to identify when a family needs to undergo a review of their family and business values.
