Being a Family Leader involves many different skills and professions. As a Family Leader you are required to be a Financial Advisor, Gourmet Chef, Teacher and Child Development Expert to name a few. When you entered the ‘real world’, married, or had kids did you receive specific training in any one of these professions? Probably not. You did bring a wealth of experiences from your own life that you could apply to this new role. Many CEO’s also bring skills and experiences to their new positions but they receive one thing that many Family Leader’s don’t…training!! As a Family Leader you are essentially the CEO of your very complex, every changing family! Families range from multi parent households with children to one adult living alone! In other words, a family is defined however YOU want it to be!
