Road Map Institute

Creating family harmony and lasting legacy

Family businesses that know how to manage conflict are better prepared to move forward and plan for the future. This two-weekend program helps you identify and clarify your family's collective values and build a plan to remain strong through multiple generations.


During this multi session workshop, you'll develop family business insights together by viewing and discussing a video case study involving typical family business issues.

  • How to appreciate the issues of business families
  • Practices that help families endure in harmony over time
  • A common language that allows you to discuss and solve difficult issues together
  • Establishing what your family and business will be known for
