							Companies that are owned and run by families need to develop leadership and  entrepreneurial skills just like any other company, but family firms face  obstacles that “hire and fire” companies don't. Family dynamics rarely  perfectly mirror the best practices in the latest Harvard Business Review. So  what factors in the family and work environments enable the creation of leaders  who share the entrepreneurial fire of the founders? Allan Cohen and Pramodita  Sharma, scholars with deep professional and personal roots in family  businesses, draw on extensive global research to reveal the secrets of  enterprising families, using examples of both firms that flourished and those  that failed. Cohen and Sharma offer profoundly practical advice that will  ensure family businesses thrive into the next century.

“It was very hard for me to put the book down. Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, so much rings so true. I wonder had I read this years ago how my life might have been different. The book documents so much of what our family is living through! It has lots of great ideas for preparing the next generation to continue their roles as stewards of the brands and family participants.” - William S. Fisher, Board Member, Gap Inc.

“Allan Cohen and Dita Sharma have written a highly insightful, clear, and pragmatic argument that innovation in family companies is essential for multigenerational success. This will help families understand how to innovate in every generation and how to develop leaders who can bring about needed change in the family business.” - John Davis, Chair, Families in Business Program, Harvard Business School, and Chairman, Cambridge Ad
