The 3 Systems of Family Business

The Family Business is an energy-laden, explosive mix of passion and potential – but it can also create complex problems. When it's well-focussed, the "Family Force" achieves wonderful things - but when it loses direction and turns on itself it can culminate in conflict and division. Sadly, it can even destroy families and businesses.

The 3 Systems of Family Business will enable you to understand how these issues invariably centre around the 3 systems of the family business dynamic - the distinction between family, business and ownership issues. These issues, when not understood, often lead to unncessary challenges.

Achieving prosperity and serenity in a family business environment requires skilful and innovative solutions for some complex problems. Perhaps your family may need assistance and guidance from a Family Business Adviser.

We are able to provide practical solutions for families in business, by knowing how to look at the whole picture across the 3 systems of the the family organisation – not just the needs of the business entity, but also the individual personalities, their roles and needs. As an accredited Family Business Adviser by Family Business Australia, Paul Smith is respected for understanding how families in business tick. In an ongoing sense we also share experiences and learnings with peers - both nationally and globally.

With valuable navigation tools being used as a reference, your trusted family business adviser and facilitator will work with you, your family and collaborate with other specialist advisers, tackling key issues and keeping you on track to achieve your goals.

As an Accredited Family Business Adviser, Paul's focus is always to work with the people and the family first - the human issues - then on the business.
