The essential root of both the family and its business is something Tom calls the “soul” of family business. It has to do with the family’s values, love, and heritage. It’s their “secret” sauce, and in The Soul of Family Business: A Practical Guide to Family Business Success and a Loving Family, Tom shares the secret to creating a successful business while building (and maintaining) healthy and happy families.
The Soul of Family Business uses case studies from Tom’s more than 35 years as a family business consultant paired with his vast knowledge of family business best practices and covers sticky topics such as managing conflict, succession planning, legacy and more. He believes in the power of legacy—both within family businesses and his own, as she shares his wisdom with the hopes of helping others leave theirs.
