Steve Legler Headshot 2018

Steve Legler, MBA, FEA, CPCC
Family Governance Coach

Steve Legler is an independent Family Legacy Coach based in Montreal. He grew up in a business family, destined to take over the company his father had founded before he was born. After an unexpected liquidity event that occurred while he was still in his 20’s, he ended up managing their family office instead.

In 2013 he stumbled upon the Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) program, which turned into a career-changing calling for him. He now works with family clients as a facilitator, and sometimes as a mediator.

He also does individual coaching with family members from every generation. He is the author of SHIFT your Family Business: STOP working IN your Family Business, Start working ON your Business Family (2014) and Interdependent Wealth: How Family Systems Theory Illuminates Successful Intergenerational Wealth Transitions (2019).

He is a member of the faculty of the Family Firm Institute’s global education network program (FFI-GEN), leader of the Wisdom Expedition for the Purposeful Planning Institute, and one of the hosts of Family Enterprise Canada’s “Let’s Talk Family Enterprise” podcast.
