Women in family business leadership roles; daughters on the stage.


Women in family business leadership roles; daughters on the stage.

Barrett, Mary and Ken Moores.

Edward Elgar Publishing


198 pages




For family business owners and managers, students, and academics, Barrett (management, U. of Wollongong, Australia) and Moores (Australian Centre for Family Business, Bond U., Australia) examine 13 international cases of women in family business leadership roles in both large and small firms, and how the women attained leadership or failed to do so. They consider the characteristics of leadership and how they apply to women, without seeing women and men's approaches as inherently different; women's approaches and experiences in leadership roles at different phases of learning; whether success or failure is the result of gender or other factors; and how these women's experiences inform understanding of leadership and entrepreneurship and how family businesses function.
