Topic: Is Your Family Business a Winning Team?
Is your family a highly functional team? Are you one cohesive unit, or are there so many moving parts that your departments work in silos? Come to our next Family Business for Breakfast workshop and learn techniques and ideas to help your family business run more like a team, and less like a group of individuals!
This event will be led by The Rick Muth Endowed Chair for Family Business, Dr. Lori Muse. While you work with other family businesses in the area, Dr. Muse will provide a fun, highly interactive, and profound journey. You will come away with excellent tools you can bring back to work to immediately improve the way your team works together, in the workplace, as well as at home.
