Around the Kitchen Table
Picture this – sitting around the table discussing whether to upgrade the sheep yards or renovate the kitchen. Half an hour later a solution is found and everybody is happy!! Never happens, right?
Lincolns session plans to give families the tools to make conversations about decision making easier.
Exploring this topic using real-life examples outlining common hurdles we all come up against and how you deal with the different personality types.
Before you get to the point of discussing succession and other large decisions, take
the time to do the following exercises within your family group:
- Establish 5 core values and define what they mean for you.
- Determine 3 goals and share them with your family so they can assist and support you. Ensure or work out a way to have your personal goals align with the business and family goals. Make sure your goals are SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely.
- Consider your personality type and those around you; be mindful of what triggers stress in each type. Understand these differences as an explanation of behavior not an excuse.
- Assess your communication types – this will allow you to improve the avenues of discussion within a family group.
- Choose your advisers wisely.
- Remove the emotion – make decisions when emotions aren’t running high and can tend to lead to arguments. Think of contingency plans before a situation arises.
- Place the right person in the right role for them.
- Pause, listen and absorb – Consider the why of people’s answers before reacting to them – consider the why of your own before giving them
Call Lincolns if you would like help to start the conversation or facilitate a family meeting.
