Balancing Personal and Professional Relationships in Family Businesses

Managing family relationships at work is one of the thorniest issues in family-owned businesses, particularly when relationships cross generations (e.g., parent-child or uncle/aunt-nephew/niece). Many family members are committed to professionalism and strive to separate work and family in their dealings with each other. However, simply decreeing such a separation between work and family is not enough.Both family leaders and the rising generation have work to do to ensure cohesion on a familial and business basis.
