Lesley believes that in all global organizations, there are cross-cultural issues that are clearly visible, such as language and humor, or far subtler, such as individual work styles and group relationships. To help companies succeed in a multi-cultural environment, she approaches cross-cultural situations by examining the similarities as well as the differences. She works with teams and individuals on perceptions, misunderstandings, cultural systems, cultural experiences, and commonalties.
Ms Lewis also has extensive experience working with Families and preserving their Family Wealth. Family Wealth encompasses the Human Capital, Intellectual, Social and Financial components circulating within families. It is essential for individual members to make joint decisions as a family unit. Family Identity involves an understanding of the family structure in the contexts of family members. With decades of experience, Ms. Lewis assists families to build trust, openness, harmony and respect so the Family System becomes aware of the Family Culture. This in turn permits the individuals and the family to establish meaningful goals and appropriate solutions.
Lesley is an inspiring speaker on the psychology of wealth, business and family culture.
