This week our guest is BusinessWest “Difference Maker” award-winner Ira Bryck!
Ira Bryck helps leaders grow. He ran, for 26 years, the Family Business Center of Pioneer Valley, that provided expert and peer learning through forums, workshops, consulting and roundtables. His new work includes coaching business owners, personality assessments for professional and personal development, and facilitating executive peer groups.
Ira is the author of three plays about life in family business, presented as “edu-tainment” at conferences worldwide. His third play, A Tough Nut to Crack, is based on his years in his family’s 4th generation childrens wear business. He is the host of the Western Mass Business Show on WHMP, so far having interviewed over 300 entrepreneurs. He has created a blended format of strategic questioning and role playing that assists entrepreneurs in finding new solutions.
In this episode, Ira and I chat about some of the nuances of family-owned businesses; what baggage they come with, how to navigate them and when you may need a coach/facilitator.
