Family Business Program

Family businesses experience the same challenges as other businesses, but they also encounter unique complexities. Many family businesses throughout the world transition to new generations of leaders, their success and continuity depend on the management and leadership effectiveness of those at the top.

The existence of conflicts is common, but the success, and above all the survival of the company depends on how they are handled. If not taken care of properly, they can, not only destroy the family, but the business too.

Being part of family businesses since I was born, unlike many consultants, I pay a lot of attention to the family component, not just to the technical component in the succession and business development processes.


This program is for individual members of family businesses but recommended for more family members in the business take part at the same time.

Mistakes are part of the learning process. If you are in the C-Suite in your organization, you probably got there by making a few mistakes along the road. We learn from experience and that is the only thing that will give you confidence and certainty when making decisions.

Coaching is not needed when there is something to fix. It works much like it does with professional athletes: the more they are excelling in their careers, the more they need a coach to help them reach their full and true potential.

Mentoring is not coaching or counseling.  It is the relationship between a mentor (an experienced person) who shares knowledge, experience, and advice with a less experienced person, with the purpose of helping the mentee in his/her professional and personal development and become the best version of her/himself.
