    yes, glad you’re interested– simply, if you work with your parents, children, siblings, cousins, or any more extended or blended relations you consider family, you may be prone to certain common and predictable shortcomings, including mis-communication, unresolved childhood issues, clashing values (often introduced by in laws), differing risk tolerance, joining for reasons other than your passion, talent, excellent ability to team up with relatives, etc. You could also very well have an outstanding competitive advantage, if you’re in the minority of people who have healthy and professional functioning with family members, shared vision, have each other’s backs, make beautiful music together, and can work on building a company that brings out the best of family and their non family employees–

    I look forward to learning and sharing what aspects of resiliency are naturally occurring, and what can be acquired. And, as my special interest is families in business, I’d be fascinated to know more about what families do and don’t do to produce more or less resiliency. My guess is that a good deal of it depends on flexibility (ie: trees that bend in a storm are less likely to break), good boundaries (ie: cell walls need to be semi permeable, so good stuff can get through, but not bad), and an ”all for one, one for all” attitude (ie: musketeers had each other’s backs, not stabbing one another)– what do you all think?
