FOX Canadian Market Briefing: Initiating A Family Learning Mindset to Create Enterprising Family Longevity - December 8, 2022 (Virtual)


Thursday, December 8, 2022 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Please note: All times listed are in U.S. and Canadian Central time.

Join us for a lively exchange of information and ideas with your peers at this FOX Canadian Market Briefing. 

All people live life through multiple roles, which come to be as we navigate life. For enterprising families with a multi-generational outlook, the situation gets more complicated when sorting out roles (hats) for a given situation (room). Enterprising family members can simultaneously wear multiple hats: owners, directors, operators, employee, child, parent, and sibling among others. For each hat there is a corresponding room - like the board room, the kitchen table, the family council, or the executive office.   

Each hat and room set come with their own array of rules, expectations, and intentions. These hat-room combinations are rich but filled with paradoxes. Often, enterprising family members unconsciously mix up the needed hat-room pair while conversing with another family member. The result is an avoidable communications breakdown.

During this session, speakers will explore how identifying and developing awareness of the different hats you wear and the rooms you wear them in represents the first step to building a learning mindset for enterprising family longevity. 

At the end of this event, attendees will be able to:

  • Name the various hats they wear and the rooms they wear them in
  • Distinguish between each hat’s expectations and intentions, as well as understand their respective impact on enterprising family cohesion and harmony
  • Understand the importance of critical conversations regarding family relations and the boundaries of ownership in building your family’s wealth, wellness, and longevity

Attendance is included with membership, but advance registration is required.

CPE is not offered for this program.
