Family-Owned Businesses

Family-owned businesses possess challenges rarely seen in most corporations. The boundaries around the roles are blurred, channels of communications are routinely disregarded, and longstanding feelings often trump business logic. Decision making is plagued by emotion, causing procrastination and lost opportunities.  Deep-rooted familial conflicts often prove the downfall of even the best businesses.

Dr. Delligatti works with family-owned businesses as they experience some common challenges. For example:

  • Longstanding family issues infiltrating the workplace

  • Engaging the next generation of succession planning

  • Unresolved family conflict increasing employee turnover

Family-owned businesses benefit from Dr. Delligatti’s experience in dealing with these issues, resulting in more satisfied family members, better financial returns, and increased employee productivity and retention.
