The relationship between generations can be immensely powerful, in either a good or a bad way, but when you add the father-son dynamic it can be even more powerful as a force.

Family businesses are built on relationships and much has been written about the father-son dynamic in particular.

When it come to the next generational leader of a family firm it becomes clear that any leader needs to be comfortable in their own skin, to lead from the front, but the image/relationship they have with their own father can go a long way to defining who they are, how they react in situations and the leader that they turn out to be.

Really interesting piece on the dynamic and food for thought for many I suspect too!
