We help you develop connected and capable leaders - because your most precious asset is who you are, individually and collectively, not what you own.Schedule a confidential conversation
Your family has financial success, whether you earned the money, inherited it, or won the lottery. Your biggest concerns are: How do you craft a shared vision for your family that endures for generations? How do you navigate the unique challenges of combining family and finances?
At Sankofa Legacy Advisors, we help you simplify the complexities and advance "the family side" of family wealth and family enterprise.
Talking about sensitive subjects can be uncomfortable - so you say nothing, or what comes out isn't what you intended to say.
Meaningful communication is essential to working together to manage and steward your family's shared assets.
Differences - in life stages, perspectives, and priorities- are inevitable, especially as your family grows in numbers.
How your family deals with differences will determine whether they divide you or make you stronger.
While humans are hard-wired to resist it, change is both unavoidable and an essential part of growth.
Knowing how to identify and navigate the patterns of discomfort that result from shifting roles and responsibilities eases the journey.
Yes, you want your financial resources to become transgenerational wealth. You want your family to be together, work together, and stay together. Individual family members need space to thrive, too.
Approaches to managing your family’s wealth that focus primarily on growing and protecting financial assets are missing an essential piece of the puzzle – the family itself. Family is the heart of family enterprise and family wealth.
Your most precious asset is who you are individually and collectively, not what you own.
Whether your family business is an operating company, a family office, a philanthropic foundation, real estate, or other jointly owned assets, nurturing your family’s human capital is as vital to a transgenerational legacy of success as growing and protecting your financial assets.
We work at the intersection of family systems, leadership development, and family business. Family flourishing starts with individual family members. So, we use a multi-generational family systems approach, grounded in cutting-edge research and deep praxis, to support you in developing capable leaders with strong relationships.
Develop a connected and capable family of engaged stewards who are guided by a shared commitment, consider big-picture context, and view challenges as growth opportunities.
Differentiate yourself from other family advisors in your ability to manage relationships with client or owner families and to help them manage their relationships with each other.
Be the catalyst for the change you want to see within your family, with the support of this transformative online training, coaching, and community experience.
The gift of working with Thomasina is that some things came to light that we hadn't necessarily recognized before.
