Business ownership comes with its own unique set of stressors, business issues and people problems – all of which are often intertwined. These issues, if left unidentified and unaddressed, can significantly impact strategy and outcomes, yet many advisory and professional services organisations overlook the human impacts of managing, protecting and exiting your business in their advice.
In the new season of The Business Owners Podcast, we are joined by Therese Barry, strategic consultant and psychologist, to address these human impacts of doing business.
Therese has worked with many Business Owners and Senior Executives around the stressors of running a business, as well as the broader interpersonal issues – such as family, relationships and children – and highlights that sometimes, in order to achieve the best and most informed legal or business outcome, you must first understand the complex people problems within your family or business.
Therese discusses how we can use the skills and knowledge that come with psychological training in a constructive and positive environment to achieve these great business outcomes. Episode 1 sees her deliver solutions to reduce common stressors for business owners, and delve into the human aspects of a workplace scenario around the transition of the business from owner to successor.
And remember, there is truth in the old proverb that two heads are better than one!
