- “The family champion is not a leader of the business; it’s a family member who says ‘we can do better’ and takes a more active and engaged role as an owner. That aspect of taking initiative is key.”
- “In my research, the gender of the family champion didn’t matter; the right person emerged for their family.”
- “Family systems evolve over time. They’re not static. We have to appreciate where the family is now.”
