Many family businesses face the reality of a child working in the business who performs poorly and deserves to be fired. The situation might arise because the business did not have the proper guidelines in place regarding hiring and performance evaluation of family members. In other cases, the child may have no interest in running the business. The consequences of firing a family member often reach beyond the business and continue to be a part of the family dynamic forever.

This webinar will offer strategies for preserving the family legacy and relationship. Participants will hear a firsthand account of how one family business faced multi-generational family issues and navigated through to success.

Building Co.; along with moderator Barbara Spector, Editor-in-Chief and Associate Publisher, Family Business Magazine, as they share practical ways to avoid and/or resolve the complexities of working with your children.
