Often there are a number of generations present in the business, all with different perspectives on how the business should or shouldn’t be run and managed.

Career development for next-generation family members who aspire to leadership in a family business can be quite challenging. One of the biggest obstacles is providing these individuals honest feedback on their current job performance and objective advice on steps they can take to get the opportunities they will need to make it to the next level in the business. Family leaders in the business may be uncomfortable or unable to give objective feedback to a family member, and many non-family executives may also struggle with being entirely objective with the boss’ son or daughter.

Quoting from Nurturing the Talent, a book from the Family Business Leadership Series: “A mentor is an older, more seasoned person who wants to share his or her experience with someone younger.” A mentor is also a resource to whom the mentee can turn with a question or concern—a trusted advisor. In addition, the mentor can point out when the mentee needs to adjust something in his or her work performance and can give the mentee insight on opportunities he or she should pursue.

In summary:
