I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Michael Cofield the co-author of a book on how to create peace of mind in family businesses called ” The Family Business”.

In my interview with Michael we explore the issues of conflicts in family business, and how the multi-generations of family members have difficulty in effectively expressing their emotions.  These challenge create  negative pinned up emotions that have a tendency to erode issues of trust and openness of communication in family owned businesses.   Keeping peace in a family business requires effective and open communications by all family members.  Michaels book, guides the reader through a process that helps family member learn how to deal effectively with their emotions, feeling and and ultimate actions which can have a negative impact on the other family members.

If you are the owner of a family business or the heir to a family business, then you are well aware of the issues around effective and open communications within your family business.

I highly recommend that you listen to this podcast, and check out Michael’s book “The Family Business”.
