Book: Family Business as Paradox
- “Paradox is a hot topic now…family businesses ARE a paradox: head and heart, love and performance…two seeming opposites that can be complementary….you can gain so much in the process of wrestling with them.”
- “There are certainly still many family businesses where the participation of women in the operations is not yet happening, or is happening for the first time. I’m super conscious that these women are pioneers.”
- “What shifts when women join the conversation? What could daughters bring that’s special and different? The power of calm-of support, of time.”
