Family enterprises have unique advantages in the marketplace, they also have unique challenges.
The business has grown through the hard work and passion of the founders, however when the next generations come into the business, they may struggle to find their place, or fit within the vision of the company.
As someone who works with these companies, family unity is the key component to your long-term success. The less tension there is between family members, the more productive meetings will be, and more efficient decisions will be made.
Trying to take on this role hinders your ability to get your job done.
And that's where I come in.
As a certified Family Enterprise Advisor and Business Coach, I help family enterprises navigate the issues affecting the way the company runs. I coach based on the Three-Circle Model developed by Davis and Tagiuri and I am able to coach within any or all of the circles of:
More importantly, I coach the system that these 3 circles create together. The smooth interconnection of the circles is the key to the success of any family enterprise.
Change, especially when business and family is concerned can be challenging to adopt and implement. My role as a coach is to help overcome the barriers to allow change to happen.
Prior to hiring, I meet with prospective clients to talk about the challenges and opportunities of working together. Most important, we see if we are a good fit for a coaching relationship.
Once we decide to work together, we will collaborate to determine goals, objectives, and the scope of work.
Every family is different and so are their needs. I am able to work in any of the three circles described above, that the family requires. During the discovery phase, we’ll do the groundwork to see what the factors are that are influencing the current situation.
I’m available to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of advisors to ensure that you have all the resources needed to take care of every aspect of your family business and ownership situations.
Based on what we discovered I present my observations and recommendations. This will inform you of what is needed to move forward so that you can accomplish what is important to you.
You will also be provided with a personalized Enneagram profile. This is an essential step in the process, to first know yourself before positive development can continue.
Implementation is the most critical phase, as it is where the ball often gets dropped. Understanding that the status quo is resistant to change, this is an essential aspect of the service I offer.
As a coach, the implementation stage is where I work with you to make sure follow through happens.
The right fit is essential to any coaching relationship, so I offer a complimentary 30 minute session to help us both determine that it’s a good match.
