We meet through linkedin I believe. I am a Ph.D student in Marriage and Family Therapy over at MSU...sorry! I'm doing my dissertation and other research through a group in Grand Rapids called the Family Business Alliance. I've came across your website a few times over the last two years. How's the Buz?

It's exploring the role of family dynamics in family businesses. Mostly using social network analysis to identify the usefulness or limits of the three circle model in typologizing family businesses. I hypthesize that varying family dynamics and internal family values influence how family businesses structure their ownership and practices and therefore family dynamics and values are a more accureate way to typologize family businesses. I have an article in the march 2009 Family Business Review that details the theory. My dissertation will be one step in researching the theory.

Some day check out its a nonprofit group for family businesses in the west Michigan area. I am guessing you would know a number of the businesses.

Yes I am planning to attend the Alliance conference in Chicago. I assume I will get to meet you in person there?

Hello Donald

Thanks for the invite. I am trying to find some useful resources for family business on the internet. Can you guide me? Also, what are the most popular family business associations that you would advise someone to be part of?

Hi Don

Thanks for your comments. I would also like to know your thoughts about how someone can promote their family business on social media such as linkedin, facebook and twitter?

It looks like you are far more steeped in the science of family systems than I. My expertise comes from the practical experience of running a family business, and my use of, and training in, Jungian psychological types. I use the latter terminology rather than "Myers-Briggs" as the leading professionals promoting the constructive use of personality differences are now focused on Jung's 8 function/attitudes as the basis for their work.
I look forward to participating in, and learning from, this group.

Hello, nice to meet you. I am looking forward to attending the event which will be held in Bogotá in May and I was wondering where I could get more information about it. Maybe you can help me with that :).

Best regards,

Thank you for your invitation. I am preparing for a workshop starting next month in Tokyo. This is a program to share ideas and practices with FB owners and family members.

I hope to be a resource for those family business members and their advisers who want to develop their core values as a prelude to strategic or succession planning.
