In a Family Business, once owners multiply into the second and third generations, it becomes necessary to build consensus about the family’s core values, roles and responsibilities, compensation principles, and governance policies.
The creation of a Family Charter is an important step toward ensuring that the family and the business are aware of the rules that will guide them and the responsibilities of each family member. A Family Charter can successfully inform, reassure and guide every family member and maintain harmony.
Every family member in business will understandably have their own
temperament, values, vision, capability, and seniority in the family hierarchy. Weaving them into a team that works harmoniously to take the company forward can be a challenge for any founder.
