In addition, these differences affect the individual’s decision making process and approach to business, family, wealth, community, ethics, work, risk, entrepreneurship and indeed all facets of the family and business.
Family-owned businesses are some of the most successful companies in the UK and employ over 9 million people. As they grow, it’s important to manage the dynamics between family members and for non-family employees to share the same values and passion for the business.
