It has been said the only constant in today’s environment is change. This theme of constant change is often attributed to the Greek philosopher Heraclitus and is as applicable today as the day Heraclitus coined the phrase. In order to navigate that environment of change and lead your family and your family business, it is imperative to understand the constant change. How do you recognize the change that is occurring? How should we interpret the change? How should we communicate the change? And how do we lead our family and business through the changes?
Many people have a difficult time dealing with change and often do not have an understanding of the traits of change, the stages of change, or the propensity to deal with change. Understanding and developing knowledge, skills and abilities that will help your family and family business during change will help your family and family business flourish. In a White Paper found at www.netfamilybusiness.com Melissa outlines the Stages, Specific Principles, and Motivational Elements for Families and Family Businesses in a state of Change.
