Our professional team specializes in designing, developing and facilitating effective advisory and fiduciary boards. A well-designed board—with carefully selected and trained board members and a clear strategy and plan for performance—can be a highly effective tool for building strong and successful companies. However, many boards limp along, barely adding value and often populated with the wrong members. Our focus is on helping our clients create boards that are laser focused on success. We can work with you and your management team to help identify the type of board you need, develop bylaws and operating principles, and identify and invite potential members who can help you to achieve your strategic goals.

Many leaders and/or family members report that dealing with conflict and miscommunications is one of the most stressful aspects of their roles. When trouble arises or communication fails, our team is experienced in providing guidance, coaching and communication skill-building to solve disputes and reach consensus. We are able to help our clients clearly identify the issues, understand the multiple facets of the problem, and develop shared solutions. In tough situations where the relationship is in danger of being negatively impacted, we can provide a more intensive service of relational mediation—a process designed to focus on consensus building, mutual understanding and healing.
