Conflict Management Training

Manage Differences and Protect Your Family Against Future Conflict

Gain practical skills to understand and address differences, so your family doesn’t erupt into conflict that can derail businesses and relationships.

Is this training for you?

Do you:

  • Want to build resilience in your family?
  • Disagree over how assets are shared and managed?
  • Disagree over power?
  • Avoid making decisions—and then miss opportunities?
  • Anticipate a significant transition?
  • Worry about rising tension, litigation, or damaging relationships?
  • Want to maximize business potential and nurture relationships?

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding why family business conflict is so common, often intense, and difficult to resolve
  • Identifying and addressing active (fighting) vs. passive (getting stuck) conflict
  • Avoiding counter-productive conflict management techniques
  • Developing your family connection, or “Family Factor,” to protect you during change
  • Establishing your family’s Conflict Management Contract


When your family improves conflict management skills, you can make better, more efficient decisions about:

  • What is fair
  • Leadership
  • Family governance
  • Business planning
  • Succession planning
  • Integrating and deploying wealth

Continuity experts wrote the book on managing differences in families that share assets or business ownership.
