Creating harmonious loving families that are unified around profitable, growing, and stable businesses. ℠
Clients report surprise and delight with their newly found business success; closer relationships and intimacy at work and at home; more happiness; peace; profits; and deeper contentment with life generally.
Guidance with Business Acumen, Finesse, Empathy, and Deep Compassion
We guide family business owners, board members, executives/employees understand and manage the complicated dynamics and interplay between their roles as owner, executive/employee and family member. At the same time, we catalyze the letting go of deeply ingrained and unproductive familial habits, destructive beliefs, and old hurt, while fostering new behaviors, mindsets and healthy emotional and communication patterns that foster love, peace, harmony and effectiveness.
This way families can resolve conflict harmoniously and creatively and become unified in support of stable and growing businesses, effectively managing both day-to-day activities and the desired legacy for later generations.
Family Business is Different
Family business is different from other business as it is immensely more complicated. Relationships between family members, whether as owners, board members, or employees, can make managing business together beautiful and rewarding. But, when expectations are not understood, aligned, or not managed effectively, or ideas, emotions, needs and desires are not expressed freely and heard generously, relationships and the business suffer.
How other Advisers Fall Short
Succeeding in, and for us, consulting to, a family business requires an extra level of finesse and understanding of strategic, organizational and challenging family system dynamics that are rarely understood by their other advisors. Lawyers, accountants, wealth and trust advisors are important, but they tend to lack either: the patience or preparation to dive deeply into complicated family dynamics and facilitate effective decision making; the business savvy to ensure effective implementation of the decisions; and the compassion and deep empathy to move a family in business through the most challenging times. Psychologists can be too focused on analysis, individual mind-based cognitive egoic methodologies, miss the entire systems of the individual and collective, lack business understanding, and take too long to get results.
