Is your Family Business Healthy, Productive and Positioned for the Future?
We live in a time of greater potential and greater conflict than ever before in history.
During times like these we have 2 choices: we have the choice to continue the cycle of conflict or we have the choice to reconcile and move forward.
Family is a mirror for the problems of the world and the problems each individual faces in their human evolution.
As humans, we have the unique ability to go beyond old resentments, family beliefs, our limitations and environment, and begin a new journey toward full acceptance and love of ourselves and those closest to us.
When we as individuals make this choice, we impact our family. When we impact our family, we impact our team. When we impact our team, we impact the world.
Your role in making the world a better place starts at home, with yourself and with your family, and we believe that improving family relationships is the biggest challenge and the biggest opportunity for transformation in our lives… and ultimately changing the world.
What do Walmart, Hilton, The New York Times, In-and-Out Burger, and Nordstroms have in common?
They’re all family businesses that have stood the test of time and built a multi-generational legacy poised to continue on into the future for decades to come.
They’ve done what many family businesses have failed to do: they’ve stayed relevant and allowed each generation to grow, evolve and adapt the business to their world and their experience.
While family businesses are some of the most loved and culture-rich businesses there are, the facts are these:
• 70% of family businesses have the desire to transition leadership to the next generation and only 30% successfully make the leap. The rest descend into conflict and distrust.
• Only 3% of them make it into the 4th generation.
When it comes to creating a rock-solid family business with the potential to stand the test of time, there are no surface level solutions or quick fixes.
While you can address problems and challenges quickly, building an enduring legacy and sustainable company takes more time and requires a deeper level of work.
Surface level issues nearly always point to deeper institution-level issues that need to be resolved if you want to be included in the list of great family businesses that are still around 100 years from now.
The good news is there is a proven model to follow to creating a long-lasting legacy that we can’t wait to share with you in the following pages of this site.

We bring the wisdom that can only come from a combination of firsthand experience and deep personal development work and healing.
We believe in modeling our work first and foremost in the way that we show up, the way that we speak, the way that we look at each other, and most importantly the way that we relate.
