The secret behind many successful family businesses is that they develop policies for predictable challenges before they escalate into divisive issues. Family business policies allow families to ensure alignment around common questions and head off potential conflict that can arise when sticky situations become personal. By having a guide for decision-making, your family can build in fair processes that when applied consistently can result in acceptance of and commitment to decisions on the most personal of matters.
