3 core skill sets required for successful family business consulting

We believe that family business consulting is most effective when the consultant is trained in 3 core capabilities: business operations, family dynamics and conflict management. Continuity’s family business consultants all have experience in these areas and have the highest credentials in these fields. Coupled with their substantial experience in both family and non-family businesses in the US and abroad, Continuity family business consultants have had transformative impact for the many families we have worked with.
