Organizational Change Management
Large Denominational Church: Northern Colorado|
Organizational Effectiveness & Team Building

Family Business Enterprise|
A large family with members located in three different parts of the country owned multiple commercial properties in the Chicago area. The family units disagreed about how to manage their properties and leasing commissions, distribute rental income, and create a plan of succession from the older to younger generations. As distrust grew, they hired us to facilitate their conflict and build consensus about the issues most important to them.
