“I will study and prepare myself and someday my chance will come.”
– Abraham Lincoln
The short article below describes Warren Buffet’s idea that the qualities that make up good character can be learned and, in fact, are the results of choices that people make.
I’m reminded daily of the choices I make as a leader of my family and of The Certior Group. Whether I’m aware of them or not, the choices I make send messages to others about who I am and what matters to me.
One of the most important lessons I’ve learned from working with Empowered Wealth is that I have to show up every day with my “Leader Hat” on. I have to both lead by example and give others the opportunity to grow into their future roles as leaders themselves. I’m sure the same is true for each of you, especially as stewards of your family’s True Wealth. You too must simultaneously make decisions today, lead by example, and cultivate leadership in those who will one day take on responsibilities. These future leaders – especially the future stewards of your family’s True Wealth – must learn to lead in a world that we likely can’t imagine. Nevertheless, our role is to teach, guide, and help them become the leaders they are capable of becoming.
When we started The Certior Group, we saw an opportunity to support families as they steward their True Wealth. Collaborating with families and their advisors to cultivate family leadership is a challenge we’re prepared to take on. For further information, see our page on Family Stewardship.
