NSE clients' are business families who are looking to, improve the performance of their business, create healthy and strong family relationships and build the next generation of leaders. Family businesses have a unique advantage and challenge in ensuring that family members thrive in both the family and the business environment. Our role as “business and family” coaches is to assist the family in developing communication and governance strategies that ensure that each family member finds their safe space**, and from there, learns to contribute positively to both the family and the business. NSE partners with Veritage Family Office, (an established family business coaching organization), leveraging the methodologies and their global connections.
The primary services that NSE offers are support in developing, governance, next generation leaders, facilitating family meetings, and individual coaching.
Individual coaching is the foundation to the success of the other services.
