November 8, 2018: Quarterly Members Breakfast Seminar: Having Difficult Business Conversations with Family

What you missedThis seminar focused on a topic that can make or break family businesses. With two presentations on proper techniques for guiding difficult conversations and tools for having successful and productive discussions, our members were able to gain an edge on approaching these emotionally-charged situations. Our members were also able to engage in conversations with each other and share individual experiences they have encountered and give insight into what has worked and has not worked in the past. 

Major takeaway: Communication and transparency can make a world of a difference. Take note of your triggers and your assumptions prior to entering into a difficult discussion.        

Experts: Brian Brogan, Director, the Initiative for Family Business and Entrepreneurship, and  Delores Mason, Visiting Saint Joseph's University Faculty.
