Those who follow The Alternative Board’s blog and social media accounts have likely noticed the major focus on family-owned businesses in the past month. TAB began emphasizing this core theme by releasing the results of an exclusive survey of business owners which outlined the unique challenges family businesses face, such as succession planning (or the lack thereof). Shortly after this research was made public, the results were cited in articles from leading business outlets such as The Huffington Post, Inc. Magazine and Small Business Trends.
Additionally, TAB has published a series of blog posts and tips to help family business owners, including:
Family Business Tips from a TAB Board
9 Elements of Family Business Success
5 Questions to Answer Before Joining the Family Business
Tips from the Top: Family Business Issue
In the spirit of continuing to provide helpful advice to the family business community, TAB will be giving away free copies of the book: 9 Elements of Family Business Success: A Proven Formula for Improving Leadership & Relationships in Family Businesses over the next month.
This bestseller was written by TAB founder and chairman, Allen Fishman, and continues to be a leading source of information for family business owners worldwide.
