David helps families to remove the barriers to success of the business and success of the family. Family members will experience increased satisfaction from working together in the family business.

Based on what he learned in his first 20 years of consulting with myriad families in business, David compiled a list of common traits possessed by his most successful clients. The 10 Keys to Success in Family Business is a list of the most important attributes families in business must have to be successful.

This list was developed based on what David saw as “successful” in family enterprise. It characterizes the families that remain “positively connected” in an economically viable business. It has been used as a template and workable set of criteria against which families can measure themselves.
