A Family Thing


The family business…they have existed for centuries with great success. Although we might recognize an organization as a “family” business, it is likely that you will employ those who do not share your DNA. How does employee motivation factor into your organization? This creates an interesting dilemma – how do you keep your employees motivated when it is common knowledge that they will have the ability to progress only so far within your organization? Better yet – how do you keep them motivated when they are tasked with teaching the next generation of family leadership? I am not sure how I would feel about this, putting in your time for an organization knowing that you will never get to the level you want because you have the wrong last name. What is your take on this?
