One of the CFEC’s main approaches to helping family businesses is through offering educational programs. Since our founding, we have come to learn that family businesses should not be run like their non-family owned counterparts. This is largely due to the fact that family businesses have many unique qualities that, when properly leveraged, can lead to extraordinary performance. It is for these reasons our teachings often are in direct contrast to traditional business classes, as we want you to avoid the undesirable results that are often associated with family businesses following traditional business practices.
Educational programs are typically offered in an open enrollment or customized format for family businesses (shareholders and employees), professional advisors, associations, and scholars.
