  • Generally, the purpose behind a business meeting is to generate teamwork and productivity. A family meeting is so much more than that. It's about facilitating family harmony as well as making vacation plans and discussing the family calendar. You can also work through hurt feelings and support each other in tough times. And there's a bonus for blended families: regular family meetings become a ritual that strengthens a sense of family identity.

Ron: Corporations have business meetings all the time. Shouldn’t families do that?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Business meetings—when managers and employees get together to discuss production goals, sales reports, and marketing efforts. Generally, the purpose behind a meeting is to generate teamwork and productivity. A family meeting is so much more than that. It’s about facilitating family harmony as well as making vacation plans and discussing the family calendar. You can also work through hurt feelings and support each other in tough times.

And there’s a bonus for blended families: regular family meetings become a ritual that strengthens a sense of family identity. To learn more about how to make family meetings work for you, see my article online.  For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
