Successfully integrating family into business leadership while balancing family dynamics is full of complexities. As Joe Chastang shares, many private and family business owners screw it up. Thanksgiving and Christmas come around every year, and the business provides for 100+ employees.

Mismatched expectations, communication differences, and management styles can create challenging moments impacting business operations, team dynamics, and family gatherings. By leaning on succession experts, Joe and his leadership team learned how to improve the company and grow the business, successfully integrate the second generation into key leadership positions, and balance family and business relationships.
