Tulay Akova


Tulay gets a rush looking at the functional similarities between institutions and the behavioral similarities between people. It is important for her to treat institutions as an organism – fertile and full of creative energy. With this approach, she analyzes the working system of companies, the dynamics behind the processes, the continuity of employees' happiness, and  she ensures the continuity of initiatives. In addition to the classical methods, she investigates and models certain concepts like Archetype, Consciousness, Unconsciousness, and Masculine and Feminine Energy Distribution, which are the subjects of psychology schools like Gestalt and Jung.

She believes that family companies often struggle to cope with the conflict of having both a need for corporate change and at the same time a resistance to change. She believes that family companies are in need of institutional experience in order to progress. Thus, she has set family companies as a focal point for her work. She consults family companies on the topics of institutionalization processes, development stages, strategic planning and business development, and critical factors for success during the transition to the second generation yet safe and grounded environment for her clients to think and make decisions for themselves.
