Family Business Coaching

When business, finances, and property become intertwined with family relationships, life can rapidly become difficult and complex to the detriment of both business and family. With family businesses, trusts and estates, or complex property ownership, there is a need to sort out business dynamics and family relationships.

As a Family Business Coach I work with clients to:

  • Assess family issues for their impact on business and finances
  • Assess business and financial issues for their impact on family relationships
  • Ensure continuity planning and generational succession
  • Facilitate family-business retreats
  • Guide strategic planning
  • Create and facilitate:
    • Business processes
    • Family councils and family meetings
    • Shareholder councils
    • Boards of advisors/directors
    • Codes of conduct
  • Establish processes for mediation and conflict resolution
  • Sort through and clarify complex family and business issues
  • Build communication skills and trust
  • Develop entry and exit criteria
  • Create and guide leadership and career development programs
  • Design and monitor performance appraisal systems
  • Mentor aspiring leaders
  • Establish and coach teams
  • Clarify roles and responsibilities
