How We Begin

We use a disciplined process to get to know each family we work with. This process is based on two tools: the Family Balance Sheet (TM) and the Family Executive Summary (TM). These tools allow us to understand better each family's levels of human, intellectual, social, and spiritual capital, as well as family members' individual and shared aspirations and concerns. Most importantly, going through this process also gives the family a chance to assess their strengths and areas of opportunity.

Please contact us if you would like to talk about inviting your family into this process of deeper self-understanding.
