From Joe’s perspective, succession planning is the most reasonable thing he has done to help his business. As Joe says, “Like it or not, the family business is tough.” It never is “just business” when the family is involved, so it is hard to separate business and family matters.

Commitment to the succession process shows the next generation, key leadership, and employees how much you care and breeds respect and trust. With respect and trust, family, key leaders, and employees are in a position to listen, gain understanding, and collaborate to identify win-win strategies.
