“Orderly family succession requires the integrated and concerted efforts of the inter-generation team to work together harmoniously and seamlessly. Coupled with diligence and perseverance, a successful outcome is possible.” 

“In Sheng Siong, we have three brothers, and many family members, making our past structure complicated and difficult to manage. Our large family needed a trusted advisor to help iron out our differences. A trust advisor can also help resolve internal family differences and conflicts.”

Next, the Founder and Group CEO of Q & M Dental Group (Singapore) Ltd, shared with us the top three skills to be a successful entrepreneur.

修身齐家治国平天下 – If you can make yourself well, you can form a good family, you can handle the family well, then you can form a company, then you can run the company well, then you can actually use the company to go conquer the world.”

先舍后得,有舍有得,多舍多得,没舍没得 – So, in giving back or in giving, then we can receive. If we don’t give, you can’t receive anything. So, in dealing with people, be is patients, dentists, employees or your colleagues, if you don’t give anything, why would people want to give anything back to you? So, don’t expect anything from anyone, unless you start giving.”

“Love Quotient (LQ) – you love people before people love you, so you give your love first to people. All these people around you will come back and support you.”

A family in business faces a multitude of challenges, such as keeping harmony in the family, caring for and developing individual family members, sharing the fruits of success, and at the same time, protecting, sustaining and growing the family businesses.
