In this inaugural episode of Family Business Leadership, Robin Letchinger interviews Richard “Dick” Seaman as he introduces us to the concept of family business stewardship. Through his own experience and stories, Richard shares what it took to assume leadership of the family business at a young age after a family tragedy and then both grow it and prepare it to be managed by his children and grandchildren. Richard highlights the importance of a “stewardship” mentality, family education, and family communication. He also shares his experience with professional managers and leaders. Robin and Richard discuss these topics that Richard also shares in his recent book, A Vibrant Vision: The Entrepreneurship of Multigenerational Family Business.
