Business family enterprises are complex. Understanding and navigating the intersection of family, ownership, and business requires insight and in-depth knowledge to successfully continue the family legacy.
SKM Associates Family Business Consultants provides peer group forums for the business family community. Members of these affinity groups have the opportunity to engage in dialog with experts and colleagues on issues they face every day. Business family members are able to ask questions and discuss challenges they’re facing and receive feedback and advice from the community and colleagues who have faced these same issues and have had success in navigating through them. Peer groups are built on trust and sharing in a safe environment, a non-competitive environment, and an environment that provides candid feedback for personal development and development of the family legacy. Each affinity peer group is carefully formed to meet the specific needs of the group and assure non-competitive businesses. The affinity may be emerging leaders, the senior generation in transition, or current leaders.
Critical topics for discussion and exploration include succession and transition issues, communication, core values for the family, involving the next generation in the business, keeping the entrepreneurial spirit alive, just to name a few.
There's no need to walk this journey alone. Our peer groups give Family Businesses the ability to keep their finger on the pulse of hot issues and an ear on what works and doesn't work in solving today's family business challenges.
In many cases these groups will give Family Businesses the tools to stay ahead of issues before they develop and learn from others who have faced them and more importantly, succeeded in finding solutions.
