"Family is a metaphor for the future of business"

There are many great insights in this book by Kevin Roberts. One is "Family is a metaphor for the future of business." You can view my Amazon review of this book here.

My ideal clients are either family businesses, or they're leaders seeking to operate their business as families do.

In Q & A sessions that follow a lot of my presentations I often break the ice by asking people what they are passionate about. The most common answer is family. I then go on and ask the following four questions:

1. What makes great families great?
2. What do great parents do?
3. What do great life-partners do?
4. What do you notice about siblings who really get along?

Whatever the answers I then ask: What would happen in your organisation tomorrow if you began to apply the principles behind your answers?

Who will you become? What will you do next?
