The Importance of Family for Business Success As can be seen, the stability of family business depends to a great extent on intergenerational relationships and communication patterns (Wang & Poutziouris, 2003). Cohesion within the family also ensures optimal performance in family business. Although a tendency to keep family business within the family is predominant among the old family firms, relatively new and multiple business holders show interest in quality of work, financial security, innovation, personal and social advancement, corporate citizenship and job security (Tagiuri & Davis, 1992).

The field has now developed to spawn theories in an array of disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, linguistics, communications, home economics, nursing, social work (Grotevant & Carlson, 1989) and economics (Becker, 1993). Family psychologists in the Western world have attempted to distil vital aspects of family functioning based on the universal roles, tasks, processes and emotions that all families experience. These are expected to vary in accordance with the different stages in the family life cycle (Carter & McGoldrick, 1980).

Experiences of unplanned successions that caused devastating splits, both in terms of the family and the business, have prompted a determined effort to increase transgenerational communication in the attempt to create a long-term strategy. Findings also identify non-active family members as having considerable influence during succession, in particular the mothers, who act as ‘silent buffers’ between generations. Culture and experiences are seen as strong factors influencing attitudes towards succession, yet there is a shift in the younger generation, whereby less emphasis is placed on the religiousethnic community for support.
