Is There an Elephant in the Family Business?

Tuesday, January 30 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm • Organized By Kyle Danner
Online Event


Every family business struggles with challenges that no one wants to talk about.

When family businesses avoid these critical issues, they miss business opportunities, lose money and damage relationships.

However, there are ways to talk about these challenges that build the family and promote change. Here's just some of the information that I'll share during this 3 week audio course:

  • How to use the family business difference to understand the elephant
  • One approach to break the impasse
  • Five strategies for talking about the elephant that build the family and business
  • Why everyone avoids the elephant and what to do about it
  • Why it's critical to focus on behavior to create lasting change
  • Five ways to start the conversation in a positive way

Everyone receives:

  • Worksheets before each lesson
  • A recording of each lesson
  • Opportunities to submit questions
