What is Legacy Coaching?

Coaching is a relationship in which I provide a safe, supportive, challenging space for you to explore your values and identify the obstacles that get in the way. I integrate mindfulness training and draw on Acceptance and Commitment Coaching (ACC) to design a personalized program with clear goals.

For Individuals

Individual Legacy Coaching begins with a collaborative conversation exploring your unique relationship with money. I then propose a Coaching Program that provides a roadmap for our work together. Each program is individualized based on your goals, positive qualities, and a possible new way to express your unique gifts. The process involves values clarification and identification of obstacles to living in congruence with your values, leading to a legacy that reflects your intention rather than ways of being that have been shaped by your past.

For Couples

Legacy coaching can be transformative for your primary relationship where issues regarding money and wealth are creating difficulty. You may be considering marriage, or you have become wealthy after years of hard work paid off. When wealth enters the equation in an intimate relationship, different backgrounds and spending habits can become obstacles to connection. Coaching with couples begins with an assessment of how each of you relate with money and a conversation that brings you into alignment. The result is a strong team that supports each other during times of stress.

For Families

Wealth can amplify underlying dynamics in families, leading to long-standing patterns interfering with intentional planning. Recognizing these patterns and learning ways to communicate more effectively can lead to a shared direction for your family, family business or family foundation. Legacy consulting provides a process for families to identify their shared values and methods for putting them into practice. The result is a legacy that reflects those values for future generations.

What legacy will you create?

Legacy is about what is passed down from one generation to the next, intentionally or otherwise.
Legacy comes from the Latin verb, legare "to appoint by a last will, send as an ambassador." Originally, the noun meant “ambassador” or “envoy” but soon shifted to mean the money and property a person leaves behind in his or her will.

My goal is to help clients create a deep meaning of legacy, by consciously applying their values moment to moment. This process can transform relationships and alleviate difficult family dynamics that may be obstacles to creating the legacy that you envision. I specialize in working with individuals who are marrying into a family of wealth, rising generation family members, and development of current and future leaders within family enterprises.

Lindsay Fletcher Hardie, Ph.D. - Clinical Psychologist

My mission is to help clients with financial wealth to relate mindfully with money, connect deeply with others, and live a life full of meaning.
I draw on my background as a clinical psychologist, over 20 years of meditation practice, and personal experiences as a “married-in”. I offer coaching for individuals, couples, and families who want to cultivate a legacy that reflects their core values. This service may take the form of in-person or video sessions, retreats in Tahoe or elsewhere, or ongoing family engagements.

While wealth can be leveraged to live life to its fullest, it can also create problems that impact relationships, well-being, parenting, and fulfillment in a career. Whether you have earned your wealth through years of hard work, married into a wealthy family or inherited wealth, understanding your relationship with money is essential to living a vibrant life. I will join you on a journey to relate mindfully with money so that it can support, rather than detract from, a life full of intention and connection. We work together to help you create a legacy where your financial goals and personal values are aligned.
