Dr. Jamie Weiner, Inheriting Wisdom


Raised in "The Land of Giants": Listen to the Voices of the Next Generation

For children of parents who are very accomplished, the two greatest challenges are: (i) feeling worthy in their own right, and (ii) finding their own place in the world. Whether from Indonesia, Costa Rica, Milwaukee or a small town in Canada, they all grew up in "The Land of Giants." As part of an ongoing oral-research project, the voices of the next generation offer a unique perspective, and Jamie will share excerpts from his interviews. In their own words, the next generation will help us understand how they decide to remain part of a family enterprise or to disengage from it. Some will become giants in their own right. Others will become family champions, serve on boards or family counsel, and find their own, unique way to walk among giants.
