you want to lead your family well.
You are getting curious about what you can do set your family, your kids in particular, up for long-term success in the context of wealth. You know that wealth can do harm, and you are ready to get proactive in preventing problems and/or addressing issues that exist.
Let me help you gain clarity on how each family member is doing, and what support they might need now or in the future. You do not have to figure it out alone.
In fact, you can breathe a sigh of relief because I will do the wrangling, the information gathering, and provide you with concrete recommendations that you can choose to act on.
I am an objective outsider who will help you deeply listen and genuinely hear what is happening inside your family.
Get clarity on how your family will successfully navigate, and your children successfully integrate, the opportunities and challenges of wealth.
When my parents hired someone to work with our family they did not know where it would lead. They trusted their intuition that outside support would help us do something different than the examples around us.
They did not know what they would uncover, but they were willing to be vulnerable. Those first steps were the most important, as they paved the way for our family to grow together and flourish. Thanks to their initiative, wealth has been a gift in our lives instead of a burden.
How It Works
I engage with one family at a time for the discovery assessment.
your family has my full attention.
I work with the initiator(s) of the discovery assessment to do a couple of things:
Create a legacy letter of intention articulating your hopes and dreams for your children. We use this to introduce the assessment.
Gain your input into the design of the engagement phase interviews. Are there certain questions you want to ask? Specific areas you would like to better understand?
With your legacy letter of intention and input into the engagement phase, we jointly reach out to your family members and I take it from there.
I connect with each family member (including the initiator(s))to gather information and offer immediate resources for individual support. I include de-identified information in my final family report. Specific content of our one-on-one communication is confidential, which includes an individual summary report with recommendations for resources and support. During the engagement period, I am available to each individual for brief coaching calls as needed.
We will address:
Personal goals and challenges
Perspectives, questions, concerns regarding family dynamics
Perspectives, questions, concerns regarding family resources
A Plan Forward
In addition to the individual summary report, each member of the family will receive a comprehensive family report. This report highlights key findings and specific recommendations for next steps, including relevant resources and referrals.
The goal of the assessment is to shed light on how your family system is functioning and which interventions will best set your family up for long-term success in the context of wealth.
You can choose to act on recommendations as you see fit.
Your Customized Report
Individual Report Summaries
Each family member interviewed receives a summary of what we discussed - identified goals, support needs, and relevant information on family dynamics and resources. I provide individualized recommendations and resources for next steps. No one else in the family receives this document.
