I love trees. I love what they can teach us. In this case, I love how this first picture above dissects the ground and gives us a small glimpse into the incredible root system. It is a wonderful reminder of how vast, complex, tangled and even unlovely the underlayment actually is. And yet, it is the very thing that sets the tree up for success or failure.

The same is true for families...

THE CONTEXT: As you may know, FOBs are absolutely critical to local, national and world economies. In fact, on this side of the globe, they make up over 80% of North American businesses. They also routinely outperform non-family companies in employee productivity (born from greater degrees of emotional and financial investment in the employee), quicker turns on bureaucratic issues, and better overall training and retention of leaders, to name a few.

THE PROBLEM: Yet despite the preceding stats, reality shows that 2/3 of FOBs fail to survive to the second generation; only 12% make it to the third, and a mere 3% find themselves in fourth generation operations.

Written by Becky Veydt
In my line of work, I have countless conversations with people about how well their lives are working, and one of the most frequent topics I encounter is stress. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have some at some point, myself included. The question is what we do about it. While there are lots of opinions and suggestions, I want to address this from a bit of a different angle, connecting a few dots along the way.
