Even with the best legal, financial or technical advice available today, many important aspects of the custodian's personal experience are often overlooked, regarding inheritance. However, these 'behind-the-scenes' factors, influence the destiny of many private collections & heritage properties - as well as the owner’s quality of life.
There is a wide repertoire of issues which owners may struggle with, which need prior consideration in the process of forming an overall strategy- bearing in mind that inheritance has both tangible and intangible sides.
The Inheritance Muse personal coaching sessions, offers clients opportunities to gain a wider perspective onto their unique situation. It supports them to overcome their challenges, review their mindset, make decisions, heal, improve relationships and explore their vision.
What are some of the issues ?
Conflicting family dynamics, financial pressures, ambiguous succession planning, ongoing renovations and increasing sector competition are not uncommon.
Other challenges involve the complexities of opening of one's home to the public, sustenance of vulnerable fine art & archives, moving ageing parents, house clutter, liquidating home contents for sale or distribution amongst inheritors, divorce or life-change, unprocessed personal trauma and legacy burdens.
Consequently, these kind of experiences, may lead to stress, anxiety, lack of clarity, conflict, failing leadership, indecision or emotional overwhelm, which need to be resolved.
There is a growing need for a more integrative, holistic approach to private heritage management; one that places owner-empowerment and the owner’s experience at the very centre of the project.
To be true to tradition,
you need to be true to its flame, not its ashes.
-Jean Jaurès (1859-1914)
