I am assuming each family and associated business that Leslie Dashew deals with is unique. I’m near certain that many of her clients have wondered if they are so different that they may be beyond benefiting from her service. Initially, that question crossed my mind but the results have painted another and much brighter picture.

In approximately a year and a half, tremendous positive changes have been made that will insure the goals of the family and its leaders will be met in the future. With Leslie’s encouragement, the senior partners’ vision statement has come to life. With her assistance, our governing documents have been changed to insure the partners wishes’ will live on. A family council has been formed and is surprisingly functional where there was no structure before. With Leslie’s help, we have formed a fiduciary board with the highest caliber of individuals to serve the family and the company going forward. Real progress in a remarkably short time! Thanks for all you have done.

For the last three years, I have worked with Leslie personally and through our Family Council. I have been fortunate to collaborate with many family business specialists over the past ten years, and there are so many reasons why Leslie has risen to the top. 

The best way I can describe it is that her skills and her personality embody such a range of extreme talent, often across opposite ends of the spectrum, that you would very rarely find them together in a single person. This is her secret sauce, as family businesses require every kind of support. She is warm and tender, and yet has a direct and candid approach, critical in a family setting. She is a seasoned business woman, with a broad and varied network, and yet has raised a family and understands how important a healthy home environment is. She is extremely organized, always coming to the meetings with a relevant agenda, and yet is flexible and creative, depending on where the group needs to go. 

Leslie is goal-oriented, and has helped us to form a path toward a family vision, building best practices along the way. We are being taught new ways to think about our relationships, nuclear families, and the business of family business. And most importantly, through all the work, we enjoy her company and look forward to many years to come.

In the process of our family meetings, Leslie has helped bring our family together to rekindle old connections and to build new ones. She has provided context, structure and accountability among a group who ranges in age from 20 to 60; Leslie has the wonderful ability to connect with family members of all ages. While focusing on our current needs and goals, Leslie is also able to keep the big picture in mind and keep us moving further forward.
