Taking The Ball And Leaving – The Business Of Family In Business

Not a sports story but a workplace story. A superstar is leaving a workplace and one of his primary gripes is that the coach hired his son and gave him preferential treatment to the detriment of the team. Assuming this is true, how can this happen. I can see it happening in a tiny operation but in a multi-million dollar enterprise owned by a software billionaire under the media glare, this is both predictable and preventable, yet it was allowed to happen. The odds of them winning fell from 40-1 to 100-1 with this guy leaving and the very measurable cost of that is massive and longterm. All ‘family’ businesses need to have plans in place and over-the-top transparency to avoid this and the perception of it.


About Terry Williams - The Brain-Based Boss

I'm all about engaging people and helping you engage yours to influence behaviour to improve results - at work and at home. Maybe you're a manager, a salesperson, a leader, a parent, a presenter or an event organiser? You need to grab your people's attention, create some rapport, be memorable and influence behaviour change. How can we do that? I'm originally a trainer by trade, turned manager, turned comedian and partway back again. Author of 'THE GUIDE: How to kiss, get a job & other stuff you need to know', I write and speak about how to engage people, be they employees, family or yourself. How can we connect with people’s own internal motivations and help them use their own inner passions to drive towards productivity, success and happiness? And hopefully have a few laughs along the way... As a trainer facilitating learning and development in others, I find myself drawing on my own extensive business experience. I specialise in the delivery of high impact, customised training solutions for organisations that are serious about improving the performance and lives of their people.
