Pillars of Emotional Governance
The foundation, potential and power of all Emotional Governance lives in these 6 Pillars.
Healthy relationships are at the heart of every successful family business.
Unresolved conflicts damage the future, impact and legacy of a family business.
Strained family dynamics threaten long term, generational survival.
Emotional governance is the foundation for clarity, inspiration and empowerment.
Lasting legacies are created through shared values, not just assets.
Strong stewardship improves the bottom line and builds a lasting legacy.
ORGANIZED EMOTIONAL GOVERNANCE RELIEVES FRICTION IN FAMILY BUSINESS AND ENSURES LEGACY.
Many believe money will solve and alleviate issues in a family. In actuality money emphasizes the human and social issues within every family. We guide families in creating an emotional governance model that holds the individuals, the relationships, and their wealth accountable to a shared set of pillar principles crafted by the family, for the family.
Does your family struggle with...
- Engaging in meaningful conversations
- Feeling unsafe, unheard or emotionally neglected
- Entitlement and resentment within the family
- Division, disregard, recklessness or disrespect
- Emotionally unprepared heirs
- A lack of interest in family and business matters
- Inter-family conflict
- Difficulty selecting the Next Gen leader
- Communicating the key values of contribution
FAMILY UNEASE, WHEN REPAIRED, IMPROVES THE BOTTOM LINE AND ENSURES LONGEVITY.
WHAT We Do — Our Work
We support and encourage family businesses and their members to work with each other with clarity and harmony. By having the uncomfortable conversations, the business, family relationships, individual fulfilment, and legacy is secured.
We do this by:
- Creating an authentic family culture across generations
- Igniting vision and purpose for meaningful contribution
- Designing the pathway to nurture future generations
- Managing sibling dynamics to establish equality
- Creating a Safe Space™ throughout the entire family
HOW We Do It — Our Process
The process of Organized Emotional Governance begins by cultivating individual safety, where the individual understands why they do what they do, and the impact their behaviour has on others. Next we create relational safety amongst the key relationships - ultimately transforming familial safety throughout the entire family system.

NEXT GENERATION Readiness Projects
We believe the most valuable asset in a family’s portfolio is their Human Capital — and the most valuable Human Capital is the Next Generation. To create the Safe Space™ necessary for these next generation leaders to thrive, Veritage has created two unique in person experiences; The Scone Project at Scone Palace, home of the Earls of Mansfield in Scotland and The Masaai Project at the Bogani Village in Kenya.
The SCONE Project
The Scone Next Generation Leadership Program
The Scone Project is an intimate next generation (NxG) program, designed to develop exceptional leaders and unlock the potential of NxG family members, born into prominent families of wealth and or enterprise. By invitation only, The Scone Project is hosted by William Murray, Viscount Stormont and is facilitated by
Francesco Lombardo FEA.
The MAASAI Project
A Family Retreat for NexGen Development
The Maasai Project is an incredibly special program in rural Kenya, designed to identify and develop character, individual skills and personal goals. In partnership with 'WE Charity', we work with the local community to help co-create sustainable solutions that empower, educate and establish meaningful and lasting relationships.
For GOVERNANCE PROFESSIONALS
Organized Emotional Governance transforms the traditional conversation of Governance into an affirmation throughout every pillar of a family business. We reignite and reimagine the purpose of your meaning across the generations, fostering a purposeful and impactful legacy.
"Every family believes their dynamics are unique, and in many ways they are, but what they all come to discover is the same – that prioritizing and investing in their family’s human capital first is the key to a smooth and sustainable governance."
