Holistic Management is a goal/values driven decision making process that incorporates land, finances and people.
Kelly is a certified educator in Holistic Management and leads introductory workshops, as well as shorter workshops on specific areas – goal setting, financial planning, succession planning, grazing and land planning.
This planning process involves coming together as a group or organization to develop a long range shared vision and then working backwards to determine where to be in 3 – 5 years; prioritizing objectives for the coming year and developing action steps, resources needed, persons responsible and timeline for the immediate weeks and months. Kelly adapts the process to best suit the needs of each unique group she works with.
Succession Planning/Families in Business
The agriculture community in North America is at a point when many operations need to move into the next generation. For families that work together it is important to create a shared long range vision of both the family and the business. As well as developing a plan for how to achieve that vision. Other areas need to be addressed such as communication; roles and responsibilities; management and ownership transfer; estate planning and contingency plans. Not all transitions are within a family and some unique strategies have been implemented with non-family members. Kelly develops the approach and designs the plan to meet the specific and unique needs of each family.
