Key Quotes:

  • “It’s such a complicated space between family business and business issues…we didn’t have an advisor to take us through that journey.”
  • “The power balance has shifted…leaders have to engage their followers, rather than reverting to a command or control or military hierarchy. I found I started to challenge that (hierarchy). I think that daughters probably find that after they have a child and come back to work…you are less naturally obedient.
  • “If you ask challenging questions, you can be a catalyst for change…you can have success, and so can the business.”
