The Danz family has been working together for approximately 30 years. Over the last 10 years things have been very difficult as they approached succession planning and they had three misfires that caused the family and company a considerable amount of frustration. For the last four years the father and the oldest son have been working side-by-side but have not spoken a word despite the fact they work in a relatively small business. As a result of their common vision they were able to turn things around both for their business as well as their family relationship. Essentially the family began to build on a strong core of family values of generosity and appreciation for each other's gifts. From an individual perspective, the father has been overwhelmed to some extent by his success and saw himself as being blessed by God's abundance. He was eager to be nourished by giving back. Currently the dad is involved in a lot of community projects behind the scenes to assist people less fortunate. His individual vision and kything are shown here.
