Guiding A Family Business Through Change

With Kiki McShane & Chris Fucci

Regardless of the business you are in, or the transitions you experience, there are three key building blocks to creating optimum solutions to move forward, navigate change and lead with an eye toward long term success; Purpose, Vision and Mission. These foundation building blocks serve different roles AND are interdependent. Purpose, Vision and Mission are instrumental in developing a creative, caring and committed culture vital to effective leadership and business success.

As a business grows and moves through its life cycle, there is the risk that the corporate culture may lose its understanding of Purpose and that the understanding of the founder’s intention for starting the business may become blurred.

Purpose Vision and Mission are vital to forming and leading a culture that is creative, committed and caring.
