Please join us for Small Business: Keeping It In The Family, presented by Michael DeVine on October 20th from 10-11AM.

Program: Running a family owned business can either be a dream or a nightmare. Family tends to bring out the best or worst in us, and running a business with your family is no different. This presentation will help attendees understand the unique dynamics of family owned businesses and explore topics such as how family history affects the present, how emotions can help/hurt decision making, and discuss why only 12% of businesses transition to the 3rd generation. 


·  How to identify when problems are being caused by family dynamics and emotions rather than business issues

·  Self-insight into your own familial biases and how to account for them

·  How to communicate more effectively with family members, especially in emotionally sensitive situations 

·  How to identify the next generation leaders and tips for coaching/developing them
