"When put in a position."
When placed in a position of authority in a small family owned business it would be wise to understand how everyone else feels about that. It would also be good to know exactly what everyone's job duties are instead of assuming everyone should know. Actually, after 6 years of being in the position, I would tell everyone that if they are offered a position in a family owned company, just say no.
