Rise and Fall of a Family Business: The Constructive Use of Conflict
October 19, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
Presented by Doug Box, Box Family Advisors: There is no family business story that does not involve some degree of conflict. Excessive family conflict is one of the reasons many family-owned businesses do not make it into the next generation. Families in business together often provide the ultimate testing ground for managing conflict. Constructive conflict behavior can be learned, but most people have never seen such an approach modeled at home. Box provides a real-life example of the staggering impact that conflict can have on a family and relationships. He focuses on helping attendees avoid the mistakes his family made and how relationships can actually grow through the constructive use of conflict.
