Executive Coaching - with Nick Roud. Communication across a “family business"

Today I wanted to share a little more around “Communications” and specifically when you work and are part of a family run business.

As an executive coach I have the pleasure of partnering a variety of leaders, organisations of all shapes and sizes and being welcomed into those business is a huge privilege.

Business owners are looking to leave their legacy and to ensure the future is bright for their families and staff members. How individuals communicate specifically with fellow family members can be extremely challgenging.

So many times, I get to see first-hand the passion and brilliance that family run business have and I also get to see how living, working, socialising together can have potentials for things to get a bit “stale” the hard conversations are put to one side, the honesty of communication changes.

As I get closer to these family owners, it is so interesting to meet and speak to each member and to understand their huge passion and desire for the success. Oh to often can these individuals be afraid to really speak and share their thoughts (for the benefit of the business).

Without clear lines of communication it is my experience that business can start to struggle to grow, to evolve and the “she’ll be alright” mentality take hold.

Its not easy especially working for or in a family run business. They say blood is thinker than water and this is true. Here are a few things to consider individually and collectively. Have a look at each of these and see where you are today! What might you look to keep doing and what might you look to address.

Communications:

·      What will you do?

·      How will you do it?

·      When will you do it?

·      Who will you talk to?

·      Is there anything you need to put in place before that?

·      How personally committed are you to taking that action?

·      When are you going to start?

·      What might stop you from taking this action?

·      What will you do to make sure that happens?

Running a business (family) business is not easy! But having clear lines of authority, clear lines of accountability and clear (ways) to communicate with each other will allow each and every one of you the true success you each deserve. 

Start today and start to speak with your business hat on!

Leaders and Managers;  Review. written by Nick Roud - Executive Coach.

As a leader / manager of organisations and teams now is the time that we start to ensure what we are trying to achieve in business is in place. How we have documented our financial goals to shareholders and investors and what they expect from you is aligned. Key people that you need around you are in place (or being identified) etc. If things are not in place it is your responsibility and duty to take action. 

This article will ensure not only are you taking the forward steps to be “ready for 2019” but your teams are “ready for 2019”. In a world that changes by the second there is no better time that right now to Review!

“unleash your most authentic self”

High performing leader.

A high performing leader this week asked me one specifc question as he sat down with me in our first session (and I wanted to share with you if that is ok his question). 

Nick, we have agreed to work together over the next 6 months, now how do you help me and where do we begin? 

As your coach - coaching a high potential leader I want you to get results and progress forwards. It is my job to ask questions that make you think (really think) and start to fully understand yourself (this is not alway a comfortable place to be but trust me this is absolutely the place to start.  

As your coach I want you to a) understand and b) really look inside “you” not to focus on outside influences or distractions.  My process is robust and focused - it brings clarity and gets deep!  The outcome is you get the results you want. You need to take ownership.  

Discovery of who you are is where we start. 

Look after yourself and get out of your comfort zone.  

Nick - Coach,

Roud Career Coaching.
