The Family Business Domains

Family-business alignment in all three domains will give you assurance and peace-of-mind that your family and your business can flourish and thrive under the most challenging circumstances.

My Philosophy and Promise to You

In my experience, family businesses face different challenges than other businesses because of the emotional ties that bind the family system and the business together. These bonds must be honored and protected. 

My job is to help you and your family move past persistent conflict, misplaced loyalties, disconnected values, or any patterns that threaten your family business or your legacy.

The messiness of transitional moments like succession, divorce, or loss of a key player can wreak havoc on your family business. Additionally, all families are uniquely wired with specific patterns of success—some of which can threaten the sustainability of your company.

Together we will efficiently and discreetly resolve any family business concerns in a safe environment where all key players can be seen and heard.
