HOW do you minimize conflict in a family business? How can you ensure that business decisions remain objective and driven by strategy?
These are among the issues that will be explored in a seminar this Friday, April 24, on “Securing the Future of your Family Business” by Prof. Enrique Soriano, an Asean family business advisor and chair of the marketing cluster of the Ateneo Graduate School of Business. He is also a National Agora awardee and author of “Kite Runner: A Book on Family Business Governance and Succession.”
The seminar will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Choi City, which is in the Banilad Town Center.
For the morning session, participants will learn about defining and clarifying roles; communication and conflict resolution; and family governance systems.
In the afternoon, the discussion will cover leadership and change management, particularly mentoring the next generation’s family business leaders, and succession planning.
“Time and again, my advice to family businesses going through the difficult generational transition phase is this: the time to formalize family governance systems is now,” Soriano wrote in one of his weekly columns in this paper.
