9780470516713: Family Business on the Couch: A Psychological Perspective

The challenge faced by family businesses and their stakeholders, is to recognise the issues that they face, understand how to develop strategies to address them and more importantly, to create narratives, or family stories that explain the emotional dimension of the issues to the family. The most intractable family business issues are not the business problems the organisation faces, but the emotional issues that compound them. Applying psychodynamic concepts will help to explain behaviour and will enable the family to prepare for life cycle transitions and other issues that may arise.

Here is a new understanding and a broader perspective on the human dynamics of family firms with two complementary frameworks, psychodynamic and family systematic, to help make sense of family-run organisations. Although this book includes a conceptual section, it is first and foremost a practical book about the real world issues faced by business families.

The book begins by demonstrating that many years of achievement through generations can be destroyed by the next, if the family fails to address the psychological issues they face. By exploring cases from famous and less well known family businesses across the world, the authors discuss entrepreneurs, the entrepreneurial family and the lifecycles of the individual and the organisation. They go on to show how companies going through change and transition can avoid the pitfalls that endanger both family and company. The authors then apply tools that will help family businesses in transition and offer their analyses and conclusions.

Readers should draw their own conclusions from careful examination of the cases, identifying the problems or dilemmas faced and the options for improved business performance and family relationships. They should ask what they might have done in the given situation and what new insight into individual or family behaviour each case offers. The goal is to avoid a bitter ending.

From the Back Cover:

“Effectively peels back the surface of family businesses to explore the impact of individual personality and interpersonal relationships – powerful but easily ignored factors in the world of private enterprise.”

—Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Chief Executive Officer, BW Shipping

“Groundbreaking and holistic view that gives a family business soul while explaining irrationalities in a rational way.”

Mr Chavalit Tsao, Chairman IMC Group, Singapore

“Family business is a topic of considerable importance to my firm because we are a family business as are many of our most important clients. The book’s focus on both individual and family psychology offers new insights into the positive and negative influences that family relationships bring to the supposedly rational business world.”

—Raymond J. Baer, Chairman of the Board, Julius Baer Holding Ltd

“Fascinating read. I believe very strongly in the statement that ‘too many people take a rational actor approach’ when it comes to family controlled businesses (FCB). There are limits to logical decision making and we need to explore those. FCB are therefore essentially more human than publicly owned companies and it is only appropriate that we should apply psychological theories of human mental phenomena and behaviour, to understand them better.”

André Hoffmann, Non Executive Vice Chairman - Board of Directors, Roche Group Ltd
