The business (or balance sheet) must have a voice (achieved by the strategic plan).
The individuals (founder and family members) must have individual voices (achieved by a personal plan)
The family must have a collective voice (achieved by the Family Charter)
The family community (spouses, partners and generations that follow) must have a voice (achieved by the Family Retreat)
Governance and Stewardship facilitate the emergence of these crucial voices. Making these crucial voices heard in your family can create a strong, connected and enduring legacy.
