Product description

The authors explore the changing role women play in today's family business - from the head of the firm to the quiet yet powerful role of "influencer without authority" women are increasingly active in all parts of today's business. This book looks at how to encourage and support women family members, to the the challenges women face in finding the right balance between work and life, to the role spouses play in couples that work together. Filled with stories and interviews from women working in a family firm - this book provides insights and revelations that will help businesses thrive in an era of change.
