Inside the Multi-Generational Family BusinessGeneration-Straddling Siblings

Inside the Multi-Generational Family Business: Generation-Straddling Siblings [The previous chapters discussed the challenges business families face when multiple generations work together. But what happens when age differences among a set of siblings place its members so far apart that they’ve effectively been raised in different generational contexts? That’s becoming more and more frequent for business families, given trends and technology related to birth patterns, as well as the rising rates of remarriage and blended families. The result is a new layer of stack-up-related complications: generation-based conflicts among siblings, rather than between parents and children. The challenge is that siblings often have less clearly defined roles—and much more potential for jealousy—than parents and children do, making for conflicts that are more difficult to resolve in many cases. This chapter helps families understand the sources and nature of these points of conflict, and take practical steps to overcome them.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[The previous chapters discussed the challenges business families face when multiple generations work together. But what happens when age differences among a set of siblings place its members so far apart that they’ve effectively been raised in different generational contexts? That’s becoming more and more frequent for business families, given trends and technology related to birth patterns, as well as the rising rates of remarriage and blended families. The result is a new layer of stack-up-related complications: generation-based conflicts among siblings, rather than between parents and children. The challenge is that siblings often have less clearly defined roles—and much more potential for jealousy—than parents and children do, making for conflicts that are more difficult to resolve in many cases. This chapter helps families understand the sources and nature of these points of conflict, and take practical steps to overcome them.]
