EACH GEN­ER­A­TION NEEDS TO FIND ITS VOICE

Inc. (USA) - - INNOVATE -

When Teddy Fong took over as CEO of MDB, his fa­ther, Daniel, had a “seag­ull” prob­lem— he’d drop in, crit­i­cize, and then dis­ap­pear. The fam­ily hired a lead­er­ship train­ing ex­pert to me­di­ate meet­ings and pro­vide con­struc­tive feed­back. “It’s through those that my dad and I have found our voices–when to de­fer, and sug­gest rather than di­rect,” says Teddy. “As a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion per­son who is tak­ing the place of my fa­ther, I’ve learned that the fam­ily dy­nam­ics should al­ways come first.”
