Is your business prepared
to withstand a major interruption?
Every family business that has ever existed and will ever exist has dealt and will deal with interruptions, from the expected changes and challenges of growth to the unexpected interruptions resulting from loss and poor decision-making, and everything in between.
An interruption is anything that causes a break in continuity. It can be a good interruption, such as the birth of a new child, or a bad one, as in the loss of a loved one. The same goes when interruptions occur in business. They can be challenging, such as those interruptions that occur when starting a new business in a foreign land, and they can be beneficial, such as embracing new technology to stay ahead of the competition.
Interruptions are uncontrollable; however, you can choose how to successfully confront and manage disruptions both personally and professionally. Take this assessment to see how prepared you are to withstand interruptions that are an inevitable part of operating a family business.
