#32 of my Thought-Provoking Position Papers for Owners of Family Businesses

Living the Spirit of the Family Business – here is what that really means:

  • A life of self determination – you are in charge of managing your own risks and rewards
  • Direct accountability: You own your mistakes and have control over correcting them
  • You own your successes as a business family – celebrate them with your people!
  • Only in a family business do you have such opportunities to live your potential
  • Shared values as a business family are an accelerator of success
  • Family businesses are innovation powerhouses – they allow the imagination and inspiration required for innovation
  • The Next Generation has fantastic opportunities they otherwise won’t get
  • The entrepreneurial lifestyle is second to none
  • Quick decisions with a long term view – when big bureaucratic corporations still “deliberate” the impact on the next quarter, you are already out of the gate

The Economist is arguably the best newspaper in the world – did you know it’s majority-owned by business families?

Lets celebrate the Family Business Spirit at CAFE CANADA’s Family Business Symposium in Calgary May 16 to 18. Mingle with like-minded business families, catch up on Best Practices:
