Amy Schuman, principal, Family Business Consultant Group, discusses “Mastering Family Business Polarities.” These “polarities” can include whether the family should put the family’s needs or the business’s needs first. In this session, business-owning families examine classic examples of the polarities that face family businesses across the world. Participants learn a powerful and practical tool — a polarity map. They will learn to use a polarity map to increase their abilities to manage seemingly unsolvable problems, becoming more effective managers, family members and stewards of the family enterprise.
