Shift Your Family Business                                  Monthly Insights                                                        July 2016

Tip of the month:

Summertime offers us all a chance to get out of our routines, and hopefully to interact with family members in more casual settings.  If there are questions or ideas that you have in mind that you are thinking about sharing with family members, but you aren't sure how to approach the subject, a more relaxed atmosphere can present an interesting opportunity.
Contrary to popular belief, not all important discussions take place at the office or in the boardroom.  A picnic table, a fishing spot, or a campfire all offer a much more relaxed atmosphere to talk about important matters without the formality that too often gets in the way of valuable dialogue.

What's new:

- I was recently accepted into the Post Graduate Program at the Bowen Center for the study of the family, located at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.  My first 3-day session will be in September and I can't wait to get started. 

I have been studying, learning, and incorporating Bowen Family Systems Theory into my life and work for the past two years through the Vermont Center for Family Studies and their Professional Training Program on the Wisdom of Bowen Theory

- During the last week of July, I will be in Denver, for the Purposeful Planning Institute's Fusion Collaboration and Rendez-Vous conferences.

The Rendez-Vous has been a highlight of my summer for the past two years, and I am sure that it will be again in 2016.
