Conversations Series, Three
Lead Conversations is a doing something different. We are helping family members make meaningful connections with others who share similar concerns. We’re talking in a different way about issues that are often very sensitive, private and timely. Be part of the dialogue.
You can’t inherit a meaningful life.
“Developing the rising generation, the cornerstone of a sustainable family and business.” Growing up in a family with significant wealth or a family business can often feel like silence. What should you ask? Whom should you ask? When? Is it ever right to talk about such things? Great wealth can act like a black hole, sapping the dreams and aspirations of future generations who feel that they can never measure up. Over time, the possibility is that the forces pulling the family apart will become stronger than those holding it together. This is where actively developing the next generation can help. Clearly part of this is about ensuring that people have the skills and capabilities to fulfill their roles effectively. The other part of this is about supporting younger family members to get clear on what they want from their lives, and equipping all family members to have the conversations they need to have in order to understand and negotiate this with each other.
