    Personal Skills Inventory and Assessments

    First, know yourself. Before leading others, you must be certain of who you are and what you bring to the table. This course offers the opportunity to harness the power of self-awareness by developing a keen understanding of your own skills, abilities, and interests.

    Complete an assessment that will strengthen your knowledge of self, while simultaneously allowing you to fine-tune your learning and career goals. Inform your work environment and life goals with a sense of purpose. Take this opportunity to strengthen your voice and confidently engage in the activities of your family.

    Family Systems and Patterns

    In this course we will explore the foundational communication patterns within a family system. Some of these patterns are effective and lead to fruitful generational wealth transfer, while others can stifle, disrupt and even harm future generations from achieving effectiveness and well-being. The Transitional Role is a critical, self-empowering way anyone, from any generation, can learn to influence harmful communication patterns and model new, healthier behaviors.

    Developing Ownership and Leadership Skills

    This course will show you how shared ownership impacts your family, and the different generational views of ownership. Together, we will explore ownership versus management roles, and the leadership skills required for each. We will introduce the concept of family governance, how it evolves across generations as the family grows, and as complexity increases for owners. We will discuss what new decisions will need to be addressed in a 21st Century world, and how families must reshape their governance structures to deal with future ambiguity and uncertainty.

    Crossing Generational Bridges

    Family governance looks different at each generational stage but begins with the foresight to formalize, establish structure and policy that will serve the family for years to come. With thoughtful governance, rooted in family agreements, families have a foundation that serves as the bedrock for transitions, unexpected change and unforeseen events. This course covers the generational stages, the purpose for each governance role and shares examples of families that have formalized their commitment to working together.

    Amy Hart Clyne, CFP®
    Chief Knowledge & Learning Officer

    Amy Hart Clyne has dedicated more than 30 years of her financial services career to helping prosperous families fulfill the promise and potential of their legacies and achieve wealth momentum, but her real superpower is relationship building. Her infectious energy and glass-half-full attitude helps people overcome obstacles that prevent them from linking up with one another. She thrives as a bridge builder between people and groups offering genuine encouragement and an optimistic outlook on life that can provide a sense of comfort and stability in the face of uncertainty. Amy is a strategic thinker with a passion for learning and sharing those lessons with others.

    In her role as Pitcairn’s Chief Knowledge and Learning Officer, Amy works diligently to expand the firm’s position as a leader in the evolution of the family office space. A primary focus is to build out Pitcairn’s proprietary Wealth Momentum® family office model which takes a deeper and longer-term view of family and financial dynamics in order to arrive at better outcomes. Another of her key initiatives has been the creation and development of the Gen7 Project, the firm’s thought leadership and learning lab created to provide unique resources, content, and educational tools to wealthy families transitioning leadership to subsequent generations.

    Before joining Pitcairn, Amy served as Executive Director and Chief Knowledge Officer at Family Office Exchange (FOX), where she led the organization’s knowledge, learning, and education strategies for over 400 families and 150 multi-disciplinary advisors. As an expert in private wealth management, Amy has spent her career translating the needs and desires of ultra-wealth families and their advisors into practical insights and solutions-based experiences that educate, excite, and engage.

    Amy has an MBA in Marketing from Columbia Business School, Columbia University, and a BA in International Relations from Colgate University. She has earned the Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) designation as well as the Family Business Advisor certification from the Family Firm Institute.

    Outside the office, Amy has a number of pursuits that keep her well balanced. She is more than just an avid skier, having been trained and certified as a PSIA Adaptive Ski instructor. Off the slopes she gets her adrenalin rush from pedaling her Peloton where she uses the handle “badassahc”. In her more reflective moments, Amy practices yoga and enjoys gardening. And regardless of the season, indoors or out, she keeps up her pursuit of lifelong learning, mentoring and coaching others, and above all, remembering to laugh.
