Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Nurturing the Talent to Nurture the Legacy takes family business owners from the typical "sink or swim" attitude to a win-win situation of individual growth resulting in a talented management pool for the business.  Learn the difference between performance appraisals and the career development process, as well as why they should be kept separate.  Amy Shuman discusses the importance of a clear, fair process in family business management selections.  This book is an invaluable aid in avoiding the pitfalls of career development avoidance.  A must-read for any family with "up and coming" family members!"  —Gigi Cohen, Executive Vice President, Magid Glove & Safety Mfg. Co., LLC

"Charting one's course in the family business is not an easy task.  Emotions, sense of responsibilities, and family rivalries often bring about tensions that are difficult to deal with.  Nurturing the Talent to Nurture the Legacy provides an excellent structure through which to manage both family and non-family career paths.  Implementing structures such as these, gives a family the capacity to manage these tensions in a proactive rather than a reactive manner."  —Andrew D. Keyt, Executive Director, Loyola University Chicago Family Business Center
