THE UHNW INSTITUTE MASTERCLASS: The Art of Facilitation
Thursday, March 16, 2023, from 5– 6:30 p.m. ET
Families of wealth, like all families, can face serious impediments to success as a result of unhelpful or difficult communication patterns. When conflicts threaten to derail the family itself, UHNW advisors and firms often scramble to repair impending rifts when the damage has been building for years.
The 2022 UHNW Institute Symposium shed light on this issue. It highlighted the growing need for advisors to be better overall facilitators for the family, not just great experts able to provide advice. Whether you have years of extensive knowledge with UHNW families or are still learning through anecdotal experiences, sometimes good advice alone does not stick.
As advisors and facilitators, we need deeper skills to help clients examine, negotiate, and implement their next steps. To help develop these skills, The Institute is pleased to present its premiere Institute Masterclass on The Art of Facilitation.
This Masterclass will explore:
- Core elements of facilitation skills
- What commonly stands in the way of facilitating rather than advice-giving
- How to resist the temptation to ‘be right’ rather than helpful
- The special art of facilitating in group settings
- Giving and receiving constructive feedback
- Understanding learning models helpful for particular families
- Fine-tuning abilities through practice and role-playing typical client scenarios
As a result of this 90-minute virtual Masterclass, you will have gained new tools and skills for helping families shift their thinking, build consensus, and foster action that leads to tangible results.
