The Five Questions
Is it a Question of IMAGE?
A detailed analysis of the family business will be developed, which will include but not be limited to a written structure of the family business system, identification of family strengths and conflicts, communication patterns, and interpersonal relationships. The preparation of a family business mission statement concludes the workshop.
Is it a Question of COMPETENCY?
A comprehensive workshop between the Coach and the family business owners utilizing testing materials, checklists, inventories, and discussion that identify skills, talents, and competencies of the Business/Employees/Owners. Communication skills, problem solving and conflict management are significant parts of this workshop.
Is It a Question of DIRECTION?
This component consists of a comprehensive workshop between the Coach and family business owners/employees to review the mission statement developed in the Image workshop or to create one, if the Image workshop has not been completed.
Additionally, a growth plan/business plan tailored to meet the needs of the family business will also be developed, using decision-making skills, time management, priority work, control, power, accountability and dominate/subordinate management exercises.
Is It a Question of VALUES?
A comprehensive workshop between the Coach and family business owners/employees to address the sensitive areas of values, beliefs, loyalties, and change. Worksheets and checklists are developed to assess and clarify values. How belief systems are developed and maintained will be addressed. Family loyalties, realities, and expectations for each other are woven together with issues that address resistance to change.
Is It a Question of LEGACY?
A comprehensive workshop between the Coach and family business owner/partners/employees examines the issues relevant to a plan of succession. The intricate and often passionate components of succession planning target the founder, identified successor, other family members/business employees and their positions after the succession plan is implemented. Healthy transitions versus unhealthy, grief and loss, life purposes and human developmental issues are some areas that are explored.
