Harvard Business Review Family Business Handbook

Co-authors Josh Baron and Rob Lachenauer, founding partners of Banyan, share sophisticated guidance and practical advice for any family business owner, family member, or executive. The authors present proven methods and approaches for communicating effectively, managing conflict, building the right governance structures, and more. 

The Harvard Business Review Family Business Handbook is a must-read for family business owners, family members, advisors, and employees. Easy (and dare I say fun!) to read, the authors mix great storytelling with actionable guidance and advice. Highly recommend!
