Conflict Resolution

Conflicts will happen; it’s true in business because it’s true in life. According to The Family Firm Institute, 20% of family businesses report weekly conflict, another 20% report monthly conflict, and 42% report conflict three to four times per year. 

There’s a difference between disagreements and conflict.  Disagreements can be healthy and help solve difficult challenges. Conflict, on the other hand, can be destructive.

Confronting conflict, mediating disagreements, and creating a clear path to dealing with future conflict is the key to long term business and family harmony.

FAMILY CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Family is all about togetherness, but togetherness is impossible without the occasional difference… and potentially family conflict. Conflict resolution techniques use the positive emotional bonds of family to facilitate actions and proven techniques that lower the temperature and allow both the business and family to operate more effectively and harmoniuosly.

CONFLICT RESOLUTION TRAINING
Conflict resolution is a skill that can be learned and developed for use with employees and even vendors or customers. Improving communication skills is the first step to breaking through barriers and speeding learning.
FAMILY COUNCIL
Family Councils provide families with vehicles to entertain family projects and resolve issues. Some of these include developing entry criteria for new family members to enter the family business, chronicling the family history, and ensuring that family fairness is considered in family business or wealth management decisions.
FAMILY MEETINGS
Formal, scheduled family meetings provide family members with information about the status of the family and the family business. Family members can re-connect with one another, and family issues can be discussed constructively.
FAMILY RETREATS
Family retreats are conducted over two to four days at off site locations. They provide a neutral venue to discuss delicate family and business topics.
