Decisions by leaders of family firms are more complicated than non-family firms because of the multiple relationships, roles and functions of family members. There are many reasons family businesses do not last into future generations, and the emotional difficulties among family members are a major factor. For the family business to continue, the owners need the skills to manage emotions and reach agreement on significant business decisions.
Our expertise lies in our understanding and experience working with the complexities of families that have a business and other assets. Our consultants coach families as they face challenges, facilitate transitions including succession, foster communication and decision processes promoting understanding differences and managing conflict, develop future leaders, and determine how to sustain the family’s legacy.
