"The FIB program reassured us that our problems, which we considered unique, were not insurmountable. We learned that families have disparate goals and many families face issues of family history, trust, governance, and communication, irrespective of industry, culture, or generation. Most importantly, I learned that constructively addressing our issues was critical to the success of the family and the business, despite the tremendous pressure to ignore them in the name of family harmony."
