Effective family business communication is one of the fundamental aspects of building a smooth-running platform for success. Oftentimes, combining the dynamics of family and business can create conflicting messages, causing a family to confuse tasks. This can be one of the biggest mistakes families in business can make. Clarity of tasks between family and business is essential.
When a family business adopts a mission statement that spells out the business rules of engagement, the members of the family working for the business have something to anticipate. When it's possible to look forward to what lies ahead for a family business, a forward-looking approach and outlook is developed.
