Alignment is how learning to resolve family issues begins, and this is how my self-study course, Re-Imagining Relationships For Families In Business begins. My use of the concept of alignment is meant to be a 3D acceptance of your basic core values.
I was privileged to be a featured speaker at Family Firm Institute’s 26th Annual Conference in Brussels, Belgium this month. This was my twenty-third year presenting at the Global Conferences of the Family Firm Institute (FFI)! Throughout my career, I’ve always enjoyed connecting with audiences through these speaking engagements.
I presented my session with Dennis Passis, owner of Gate Enterprises Inc., a mid-sized family business. Passis and I met at last year’s conference and our conversations about professional orientation led to the joint presentation. Our talk, “What Informs Your Work with Family Business?,” resulted in a lively, 60-minute interactive session with the audience.
Jesus Casado, FFI Board member, said, "This was the best session in the entire conference!"
During our session with the audience, we spoke about how the values and fundamental beliefs of family business counselors provide the foundation for their work with family business clients. We discussed how those beliefs set the quality and tone for client-consultant engagement and become a determining factor in creating successful outcomes for the family business.
Thank you to Family Firm Institute for once again bringing together such an interesting group of experts, as well as owners and members of family businesses from around the world!

It's important that the family members running a business have similar family business values. The real security of family business is knowledge that the family has the same core values, and that in good times as well as challenging times, every member of the family is committed to working together in the best interest of the business.
