Family Meetings & Retreats
Families in business together are whipsawed. It’s hard enough to exist peacefully in a family over one’s lifetime; add a successful but very demanding business to the mix, and things get REALLY complicated! Families long to return to a simpler time when things seemed less intense, people got along better, and communication flowed more easily. They’re not quite sure how they got to the current state of stress and disconnect, but they are sure things could be better. All too often, however, they don’t have the “how to” skills to make it happen.
The Family Business Institute helps business families understand themselves and each other better and rebuilds bonds of family commitment and communication.
Assess the unique needs of your business and family to develop the perfectly tailored approach.
Design a custom plan to maximize the strengths and minimize the weaknesses of your family business to allow you to achieve long-term success.
We'll walk with you every step of the way to implement your plan so your family can enjoy and extend your family legacy and prosperity.
