Bringing Families in Business Together… 

Family businesses are complex. The duality that exists between having family relationships and being in business together can lead to issues that require the necessary skills, sensitivity and understanding of family system dynamic. Dr. Lami experienced it first hand growing up… She herself comes from a family business background. This gives her both a personal and professional understanding of the challenges faced by families in business together.

It is not unusual for communication to break down between family business members as each member. Each has their own motivations, perceptions of each other, viewpoints of the family history and fairness thresholds. Breakdowns create wider repercussions, creating significant barriers to progression, and impacting performance across other areas of life. However, when given the opportunity to voice their opinion and express their differences the result is pleasantly surprising! Family therapy in a safe and constructive environment, helps families understand the root of family conflicts, how to resolve them, and to move forward in their professional and personal lives.

Family businesses have special advantages and challenges. The next generation in a family business faces a unique set of challenges.
