Professional Development for your Family’s Current and Future Stakeholders

Family Training

Family member education is absolutely essential to the longevity and success of your business, especially during generational transitions. The older generation has the benefit of experience while the younger generation brings other skill sets and knowledge to the table, but unanticipated knowledge gaps can disrupt continuity and your family business’s future growth and success.

To help bridge any gaps and create a more informed and prepared family stakeholder group, GIC can assess the overall capabilities of family employees and board members and develop tailored training programs for family stakeholders. From governance to family dynamics, to the basics of enterprise finance, George Isaac’s in-person boot camps and webinar modules can help strengthen your family member’s skills and contributions to the family enterprise.
