If you are in a family business or even thinking about it, the best advice is this: throw away most of what you've learned about traditional management. It simply doesn't work! Family-owned companies are replete with idiosyncrasies and challenges that just aren't faced by conventional organizations. What happens when you can't fire your brother, yet he won't cooperate with you, or vice versa? How do you motivate employees who see nepotism as a ceiling to their advancement? How do you resist being a "credit hog" and avoid upstaging your staff? Why is managing your children so fundamentally different from parenting, and how do you leave behind all the "baggage" from their upbringing? Most importantly, how do you ensure that the pursuit of financial gain doesn't destroy the very family it is intended to support? This book explores these and many other questions faced by anyone who tries to make a living by working with their family. It is at times anecdotal, while at others deeply philosophical, and it attempts to help you negotiate a maze of specific problems associated with such an endeavor and, wherever possible, turn them into advantages for lifelong success.

The challenge faced by family businesses and their stakeholders, is to recognise the issues that they face, understand how to develop strategies to address them and more importantly, to create narratives, or family stories that explain the emotional dimension of the issues to the family. The most intractable family business issues are not the business problems the organisation faces, but the emotional issues that compound them. Applying psychodynamic concepts will help to explain behaviour and will enable the family to prepare for life cycle transitions and other issues that may arise. Here is a new understanding and a broader perspective on the human dynamics of family firms with two complementary frameworks, psychodynamic and family systematic, to help make sense of family-run organisations. Although this book includes a conceptual section, it is first and foremost a practical book about the real world issues faced by business families. The book begins by demonstrating that many years of achievement through generations can be destroyed by the next, if the family fails to address the psychological issues they face. By exploring cases from famous and less well known family businesses across the world, the authors discuss entrepreneurs, the entrepreneurial family and the lifecycles of the individual and the organisation. They go on to show how companies going through change and transition can avoid the pitfalls that endanger both family and company. The authors then apply tools that will help family businesses in transition and offer their analyses and conclusions. Readers should draw their own conclusions from careful examination of the cases, identifying the problems or dilemmas faced and the options for improved business performance and family relationships. They should ask what they might have done in the given situation and what new insight into individual or family behaviour each case offers. The goal is to avoid a bitter ending.
