Family Meetings & Retreats
Families Come Together to Explore Wealth, Resolve Conflicts and Improve Communication
Family meetings are designed around the following areas:
- Family Communication, Inheritance and Conflict Resolution
- Family Wealth
- Facilitating Family Meetings
- Talking about Difficult Issues
Meeting usually take place away from the familiar surroundings (usually in a beautiful resort) and the triggers of certain conversations, and the family is given the ability to talk about your choice of subjects in a confidential, safe and constructive environment.
Explore wealth: Families are uncomfortable talking about their financial statues and the challenges they may face. These can be painful issues that need healing, and differences that are hard to discuss. There are conscious and unconscious blockages that get in the way. These blockages create tension and inhibits parents, children and the following generations opening up healthy and constructive dialogues and hinder creating successful planning and successful discussions between family members.
Your family will gather in a comfortable setting away from the familiar environment and the triggers of certain conversations, to talk about important subjects. Conversations revolve around various topics such as the choices that the children face, as heirs, and as a family, specific approaches to money, whether it is investing, spending or the meaning of wealth. I find that meeting as a family and discussing values, the purpose and meaning of wealth, and what is important to each member, is a key activity for the family’s well-being.
Resolve conflicts: Families find it difficult to talk openly about wealth and other family matters, especially when opinions are conflicted – it is easier for family members to avoid the conversation than to talk about their conflict! However, when family members are given the opportunity to voice their opinion and express their differences, in a safe and constructive environment, while they are guided to understand the root of their conflict and how to resolve it, they are usually surprised by the results they acheive.
