Navigating ownership, family, and business.

Compass Point is the family business consulting group that meets you where you are. Getting in the arena with you, looking at the landscape through your eyes, we help you get clear on how to navigate successfully to your next destination point.

We help families in business remain families.

The long-term success of family business systems depends on the functioning and mutual support of each of the overlapping groups that comprise the family business system: family, business and ownership. The viewpoints, concerns, dynamics and goals of each of these groups are different and that makes decision making difficult. We help you clarify the roles, perspectives, and issues to be resolved. Alignment of each of these areas is crucial for the success of a family business.

The 4-Letter Word Owners Can’t Afford NOT to Talk About: EXIT

I’ve had my share of family business owners who avoid discussing this four-letter word to the point of pure denial, quickly ending the conversation when this word bubbles up. The word? E-X-I-T. It sounds so final. The brutal truth is that 100% of owners exit the business, yet only 50% – just 1 out of 2 owners – will do it on their terms...
