"It wasn't until we stopped meeting with Aron that I realized my week was not complete unless I had the opportunity to work through the issues I had with my brother while sitting in Aron's office. I found myself saying I should be doing something today but I don't know what it is.
Without Aron's help our business would have failed, thereby adding to the statistics surrounding 3rd generation family business. The long drive from our city to and from his office was difficult at times – going was sometimes a very quiet ride but coming home was much easier.
With Aron's help, I realized my potential in maximizing my relationship with my family at work and at home to create a much healthier and happier life.
I learned how the dynamics of 3rd generation family members can undermine the effectiveness of the business operation. An understanding of those dynamics also created a colour photo of what was happening. It wasn't so much of a shot at my ability, but more of an attempt to be the provider and give me permission to listen and try to understand the other side of the table.
When Aron deals with what could be the past 40 or 50 years of doing something that one family member thinks is right, it takes time and effort to change. My favourite word, "Commitment", helped me persevere and make the necessary changes so the next generation can say and do the same thing."
