Encountering Conflict in Your Family Business? Read This


Facing a communication breakdown?

If you’re encountering a conflict in your family business, it may not be for the reason you think. It is said that 10% of conflict is because of a genuine difference of opinion, but 90% is due to simple miscommunication.


Communication issues can be particularly pronounced in family businesses due to generational differences. What’s more, they can be particularly damaging – not only to the business, but to the family unit.

Good communication won’t eliminate conflict completely, but it will help you manage it effectively so that it does not become toxic, overly emotional, and damaging.
