No matter what the size of a family enterprise, the unique – and often volatile – mix of personal family relationships, business strategy and ownership criteria can create an emotionally charged environment that makes decision-making, not to mention day-to-day management…… 

Challenging.  And as the founding generation ages, succession and power issues across an expanding family can create cascading concerns.
