Family Rifts - Impact, Understanding and Healing
Wednesday, March 10
Family estrangement is an ailment that effects many, and perhaps all families at some point. In family business, in addition to family relationships at risk, the entire business may also be susceptible. Karl Pillemer’s most recent work, Fault Lines: Fractured Families and How to Mend Them, has received considerable attention and press.Our conversation with Karl will explore successful strategies from people who have found ways to repair rifts or live peacefully with the consequences when nothing can be done – and the first to offer hope to broken families (and businesses) which need it the most.

Borrowed From your Grandchildren, The Evolution of 100-Year Family Enterprises
Family enterprises form the majority of businesses large and small in every country in the world. At the same time, few are able to sustain themselves with the same level of wealth and success even into their second generation and sustaining shared family wealth after the third generation is nearly improbable. Dennis Jaffe's "Borrowed From Your Grandchildren" presents the findings of a multiyear project in which researchers interviewed more than 100 families around the globe to understand the evolution of family enterprises that have succeeded for 100 years or more. Dennis shared stories of long-lasting families that point to elements of families’ experiences and learnings that allowed them to survive for the long term.
