The Family Business Unit
We are delighted to be associated with Stuart Farleigh at The Family Business Unit.
There are unique opportunities – and challenges – when families work together in business, whether individuals actually work in the business or they have a share in the family business from outside, interests can vary widely.
Far from being simply business focused, family businesses also have all the emotional challenges too.
We can help where a business owner wants to create a succession plan for children; if they want to sell the business or even where there are ongoing challenges of simply working together, we have the tools that will help in these areas and more.
So we offer a very structured and yet flexible approach to clients in this very important area of business, to help all of those concerned get the best possible outcomes for now – and the future.
There are no obligations and whatever we discuss is completely confidential. Many families struggle, especially where there are differences of opinion and time has come for change. Planning ahead creates the best environment for a family business to survive and thrive, not like the 70% who fail to do so to the next generation.
How We Can Help Your Family Business
Much of this is achieved by opening effective dialogues and communication lines. That is where we offer our coaching and consultation skills, with a very objective role to get the best outcomes possible for everyone, however challenging that might be.
The alternative, as the majority of family businesses find, is failure, financial loss and not least recriminations between those who should have the closest of loving relationships – the family.
