Voices in Leadership: Black Hole Theory

May 25, 2021 - In our latest Voices in Leadership interview series with Pitcairn Chief Knowledge and Learning Officer Amy Hart Clyne and distinguished family dynamics expert Jay Hughes, the two take an interstellar approach to family dynamics through the metaphor of a black hole. They reflect on the challenges and opportunities of individuation for members of legacy families.


Watch their conversation on:

  • Intentionality around framing subsequent generations as rising generation
  • Preparing the rising generation to achieve their potential and promise
  • Harnessing the power of the black hole to support the rising generation, not harm them
