Facilitators

Overall, facilitators add value and inspire participants to take action-  specific steps in the journey of generational transition. The program is NOT designed for the transition plan to take place over the seven month period. Rather, the sessions become “tools in the toolbox” to review as the family makes progress on this journey. Facilitators are also ‘cheerleaders” to encourage participants to make attendance to the sessions a key priority, complete assignments between classes, and develop a pace of progress in developing their plan.
