WHAT WE DO
Could a family Business consultant help you?
Family Business consultants are uniquely qualified and trained to work with the family ‘system’. It is this element that is unique to family owned businesses and it is this that is often missed or misunderstood by traditional professional services firms.
Family businesses are collectively unique. Whilst the personalities are different in each business, the challenges faced are common. We often hear that families do not know who to turn to in difficult or challenging times and they find that their legal or financial advisers are not able to fully deal with these. This is where we can help.
We provide non-judgemental consulting support to help you overcome challenges such as:
– Succession Planning
– Sibling Rivalry
– Ownership transition
– Management Transition
– Change management
– Spousal partnerships
– Communication and Conflict
All family businesses go through periods of transition when big decisions have to be made. These are challenging times, but they are also moments of opportunity – when underlying issues can be resolved and the business and the family can move forward.
Most families in business understand the need to act with confidence when things get tough, but because many complex family issues can lie beneath the surface of everyday life, it may be difficult to determine the best way forward.
We can help.
…I just find myself agreeing and nodding with the discussions. It sounds like so many of the factors I’ve been grappling with over the last 5 years are very common. I wish I had found you sooner and glad you are able to assist us.
How we can help
Governance is a broad subject and is often held out as the solution to all challenges faced in a family business. We will guide you through what options you have and which are relevant to your objectives.
You will know that working with family comes with its benefits and drawbacks and the effective management of family dynamics is a key determinate in the success of the family and the business.
Succession planning is an area that is very commonly neglected in family businesses and it needn’t be as intimidating as you think. We can guide you through this process with care and purpose.
