Client Specific Programs

 

Our Family Generativity programs create conditions and activities that present children and adolescents with rituals, traditions and rites of passage within the context of their peers and their family at large. Your family's history, culture and values are interwoven with the components of the program we design for you.

 

Throughout the program there are structured opportunities that encourage young family members to learn, work and play cooperatively with each other as a prelude to taking on more responsibilities within the family business.

 

All aspects of Family Biz Kids programs are age appropriate—from infants and toddlers to teenagers—and involve inter-generational family members including cousins, parents and grandparents.

 

Our professional assessment of your needs will establish all that is meaningful in your family legacy that you want included in your program.
