With constant changes within each of the ‘three circles’, achieving a common vision may seem elusive. On top of this, expectations and pressures may be present but unspoken. The lack of open communication can in turn increase the likelihood of making decisions that are based on assumptions, or information learned ‘through the grapevine’.

This breakfast workshop will introduce participants to a practical exercise that can be used during a family meeting of your own. The exercise being presented is designed to help you and your family to open-up with each other and communicate in ways where individual aspirations are shared, so discussion can be facilitated in a way that will lead towards the development of a common vision that everyone in the family understands and supports.
