EP 222  Family Business – Motivation to Move You Into those Difficult Discussions 

Too often we avoid the tough conversations.  Our Lizard Brain gives us these reasons and exuses that feel like facts…….in working with family businesses for about 25 years I can tell – rarely are these facts.  Here’s a few of the most common “Reasons” I hear……. 

Reasons & Excuses that Feel Like Facts 

  • We’re Fine 
  • We’re too Busy 
  • We Love One Another 
  • I don’t Know What I Want 
  • It Will Never Happen Anyway 
  • We’ll Do Future Planning Soon 
  • I Don’t Want Them to Be Mad at Me 
  • No Need to Rock the Boat-All Will Be Fine 
  • We all Get Along Well – We’ll Work it Out Soon 
 
 

 

 

Recently had a family business leader – Next Gen tell me “We’re Getting Along “ 

 

Which got me thinking……- But at What Cost? 

 

  • Assuming Rather than Asking 
  • Frustrations Not Addressed 
  • Ideas & Innovations Not Heard 
  • Personal Goals Not Shared 
  • Decisions Made w/o Input 
  • Boundaries Created  
  • Not Communicated  
  • Not Kept  Disability 
  • Divorce
  • Death 
  • Distress  
  • Disagreement The 5 D’s That Can Drive Business Direction if You Don’t 
 
 
 

And, if you think it feels uncomfortable having these conversations at the time of your choosing – Imagine what it’s like having them in the middle of  

Crisis   

OR 

Conflict 

I, unfortunately, have seen it happen many times.

EP 221: Jonathan de Potter - Psychedelic Mental Transcendence

 

  Jonathan de Potter is the Founder and CEO of Behold Retreats, a bespoke wellness service that facilitates journeys of self-discovery and transformation, supported by the scientifically proven benefits of plant medicine therapy. As a thought-leader in psychedelic plant medicine, his priority is to guide leaders and executives to maximize the benefits, and to raise education and awareness on the subject.

 

Jonathan’s retreats require weeks of preparation. Goals are planned before and implementation occurs after the event. Jonathan helps others discover their shortcomings and mental blocks. Plant medicine is just one aspect of the process. It is not the primary focus of the retreat. Jonathan puts his focus on shifting mindsets and releasing egoic desire.

Chris Hull is the Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of Otus, a Chicago-based edtech company. After 13 years as an educator, Chris wanted to minimize the chaos of disconnected edtech tools for K-12 administrators, educators, students, and their families. Otus is one system to teach, grade, analyze, and plan. With Otus, school leaders can focus on student learning, not technology. Learn more at http://otus.com

As an educator, Chris struggled to collaborate with his peers. The faculty would struggle to piece together information on the performance of students. Instead of working on a solution the staff would spend time scrounging for different documents and notes. Moments like this inspired Chris to develop Otus!
