Meeting or Retreat Facilitation
Productive, Enjoyable and Purposeful Family Meetings and Business Gatherings
Meetings are how we get things done, grow relationships, and maintain alignment in our strategic goals and vision.
Whether in the board room or the living room, with family or non-family members, family meetings with the enterprise stakeholders can be daunting, risky, and potentially transformative. It is essential to manage the inherent conflicts among family members who own, manage, and live together when planning a family business meeting. Often things can begin casually and escalate into conflict – or they can be well planned but fall short of their intended purpose.
