Event description

Description

Failure is an Option (?!)

Do you want to be Rich, or do you want to be King?

The difference between the two is power, whether cosolidated or diffused.

In the quest for harmony, most family businesses face tough decisions:

  • Control and Ownership
  • Growth and Risk
  • Longevity and Harmony
  • Conflict and Trust

Sometimes what one might consider to be "failure" from a family business standpoint is actually the best solution. Harmony is not free, and it doesn't come cheap.

Ted Clark, Executive Professor at Northeastern University and Director of the Center for Family Business, will lead an interactive discussion and workshop on how "failure" leads to succes. Caleb White, former CEO and current sixth-generation owner of Ensign-Bickford Industries Inc., will share his family's experience with choosing between the consolidation or diffusion of power.
