Success is NOT an accident. Success for business families is a choice – actually, many thoughtful, wise choices made together and implemented over the years.

Without guidance, many families feel that they are placed at the foot of a beautiful mountain range with no map or resources on how to reach their summits. We serve as your “guides” as you cross the rivers through unknown rapids, a journey which includes many hills and valleys. The journey is often 3 steps forward, 2 steps back…progress, not perfection…indeed for the individual and the family as well.

We offer three areas of guidance and resourcing to prepare your business family for generations of success:

  • Our FORUMs are the community guide on the journey, where multiple generations of family members and non-family executives learn from and with each other about the natural complexity of owning and working together in family enterprises. Meet fellow travelers who share similar challenges and opportunities, aspirations and hopes! This early education is very important in early anticipation and understanding of the terrain before the inevitable bumps in the road arise.
  • Our Leadership Labs are our team/peer guide approach to accelerating personal and professional growth as you navigate your leadership path. Learn from other family business leaders and an experienced chair as you together gain strategic thinking, accountability, and constructive feedback. Keep your compass aligned with your true north!
  • Our customized Consulting is where we walk with your family through the rivers, the hills & valleys, guiding you step by step, creating a safe place for important, sometimes delicate conversations to strengthen the family muscle, create more robust organizations, and develop aligned, competent shareholder teams.
