Trust is critical to any high-performing team. Equally, it is essential to effective family-farming businesses…
Do you have a strong basis of trust and mutual respect within your farm team?
Like a muscle, trust can be worked on and strengthened over time.
Most of us just don’t know how, or where, to start.
To expand further on the topic of farm succession, I once again speak with Tony Catt, Director of Catapult Wealth, and we explore:
- why trust is essential to effective succession planning,
- how trust is broken,
- the 3 communication and trust ‘killers’,
- how to build trust where it has previously been absent,
- the important roles each of us play within the family to nurture a culture of trust and respect.
Tony suggests that sometimes our focus should temporarily move away from important succession conversations until a basis of trust is re-established.
We also explore the notion that all of this is just good, professional business practice. Again, we have so much to learn from businesses who achieve a strong and powerful culture of trust within their teams.
An open dialogue as a family around this sensitive topic is a great place to start.
Grab a cuppa, wrangle your family and enjoy!
