Alignment is how learning to resolve family issues begins, and this is how my self-study course, Re-Imagining Relationships For Families In Business begins. My use of the concept of alignment is meant to be a 3D acceptance of your basic core values.
Family business values was one of the topics presented by David Bork at the Family Firm Institute’s 26th Annual Conference in Brussels, Belgium. Included in the presentation was a discussion about how the values and fundamental beliefs of family business counselors provide the foundation for their work with family business clients.
It's important that the family members running a business have similar family business values. The real security of family business is knowledge that the family has the same core values, and that in good times as well as challenging times, every member of the family is committed to working together in the best interest of the business.
