We invest the time to know and understand the persons, the issues and the particular environment to deliver the personalized service that the family needs.
Conflict in family businesses is widespread and is primarily due to the overlap of roles in these businesses; this conflict has its own complex and multi-dimensional dynamics, and is quite different from a normal dispute. So, it should be approached accordingly, in a professional manner that uncovers its true causes and allows for an effective resolution. Unresolved conflicts often become repetitive and disruptive
Family Vision and Strategic Plan
Successful families develop their own vision many years into the future, for clarity on the direction in which they want to evolve. This improves the alignment of family members and their business on common strategic objectives.
The family strategic plan is the roadmap to making the family vision a reality by articulating the actions that they envision to undertake for achieving the goals that they have set for themselves.
Family Constitution & Family Organization
These are a cornerstone in family governance. The family constitution encompasses the values and rules on the family conduct, benefits and relationship with their business. The family organization is tailor-made to streamline communication and decision-making between the business and the family.
Family Succession Planning
A delicate and complex process of identifying and selecting the next generation family leadership. Who succeeds the founder or family patriarch when he / she decides to pass-on the family leadership; or when circumstances suddenly impose such change? Has a successor been identified and prepared for this role, and how was he / she identified?
Vision & Mission
