0 Reviews
This casual yet informative read offers anecdotal advice on achieving financial as well as emotional success within a family-owned business. Having appeared on many national radio & television shows, the author, a graduate of Princeton University with a degree in Psychology, has gathered the entire realm of experiences from events in his own life & those of others in a unique & informative collection of thought-provoking & hard-learned lessons. Drawing upon over 20 years experience with family businesses, each chapter clearly & sometimes humorously offers examples of potential conflict as well as remedies & solutions. Not intended as a textbook approach to business, ASSUMING THE POSITION instead presents its message in a semi-autobiographical manner that follows the author's career from entry-level positions to CEO of a multi-million dollar enterprise. Complete with bullet-point summaries at the end of each chapter, the lessons are meant to assist the reader in leveraging the family aspect to further success. With the majority of businesses in the United States family-owned & operated, ASSUMING THE POSITION addresses a wide audience of varying ages, cultures, industries & educational levels.
