Saving a Family Business from Emotional Dysfunction

  • Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries


What do you think is the best way of dealing with my father? What can I do to convince him that there are better ways of running the business? I have been trying to have him accept my ideas, but he’s a poor listener. I really wonder how much he values my opinion. What grates is that he refuses to accept that the world is very different from the time when he started the business. If we – as a family business – are going to survive, we need to do things differently.
