Jonathan Goldhill is the author of Disruptive Successor: A Guide to Driving Growth in Your Family Business.

Questions I ask Jonathan Goldhill:

  • Why disrupt?
  • Is it hard for aging parents to open up the books of the business to the next generation?
  • How do you address the fact that some family members aren’t as qualified?
  • Do you run across instances where the two generations have different cultural points of view?
  • What’s the role for the older generation when it’s time for the younger generation to take over?
  • When you go into a project what’s the first thing you do?
  • How is it different working with family businesses than working with a traditional business?
  • How early is too early to start planning for this transistion?
