What We Do
We consult to the principals of family enterprises, turning interpersonal conflicts into healthier, productive teamwork. Following the dictum trust, but verify, we coach our clients that developing human capital is a dual learning process between leaders and successors.
The majority of our clients own operating businesses: small, midsized, or large. Others are family financial offices or family foundations.
Our focus is the healthy survival of the family, including members who do or don’t work in their business. Legal and financial matters are the province of other advisors.
Who brings us in? Most often, other advisors do, for help with their clients’ emotional climate and interpersonal relationships. Or a family leader asks us to work in concert with their existing executive and advisory teams.
