Every family has ambitions for its Family Office to be successful, in all aspects of financial capital but also human capital over an extended period. Quite often the pathway to success is not always smooth. In most cases, it is the culture that causes the greatest impact.

Creating a winning culture in a Family Office

We are experts in creating winning cultures in Family Offices. We have a unique and personal understanding of how Family Offices work, but we also understand about the importance of culture in such an organisation as a Family Office.

Culture has a greater impact on success and longevity than talent does

Quantifying and managing culture is critical for bringing a Family Office’s values “to life,” supporting the implementation of its strategies, and promoting adaptation, goal attainment, a winning performance and sustainability.

Behavioural norms have a significant impact a Family Office’s ability to solve problems, adapt to change, and perform effectively at the top level.

An effective culture increases productivity, effectiveness, efficiency and profits

At the organisational level, research shows a relationship between the right culture and outcomes including a winning performance, increased net profits, employee engagement, safety and reliability, successful merger integration, creativity, adaptability, and customer satisfaction.

What we do

  • We run a regular culture survey on your Family Office using data and metrics provided by a statistically reliable and valid assessment.
  • We provide your office with visual profiling of your operating and ideal cultures in terms of the behaviours that staff members believe are required to “fit in and meet expectations.”
  • We also look at how effective the current culture is proving to be.
  • We then identify and provide solutions and actions that will help close the gap between the current and ideal culture for the individuals, teams, departments, senior management and your organisation.
