Hamilton and Daniell have creatively taught us how to weave together the threads of lineage that create family legacy. They have also clarified the vision of what family leaders look like who are the master weavers of such threads. This all leads toward teaching us how to create and guide our families, and those we serve, to seven and more generations of successful, generative and flourishing lives as individuals and as family. We owe their work a deep debt of gratitude and a bow of appreciation. James (Jay) E. Hughes, Jr. Author, Family: The Compact Among Generations Mark Daniell and Sara Hamilton have written a book that will become a real reference for families wishing to establish a long-term strategy for building an enduring legacy for generations. It contains a wealth of ideas, strategy prescriptions, case histories, and anecdotes that will give the family leader and members of the “tribe” a true guide to building a system that will endure the test of time. I recommend it to families in Asia and beyond. Dr. Victor K. Fung Chairman, Li & Fung Group This is a superb book––unique and full of examples––on the vision of legacy and the role of family leadership. It is also a comprehensive guide to risk management with a special spirit for wise risk-taking. Daniell and Hamilton draw on the unique experience of the Family Office Exchange and its many hundreds of members and scores of studies to define the role of family leadership more fully and inspiringly than ever. This book makes the challenges vivid and the path clear for successful families to preserve both their wealth and their purpose. John L.

Understanding and Helping Families

A Cognitive-behavioral Approach

ISBN: 1317781856

This book presents a new approach to understanding the family unit and how and why it functions as it does. The approach focuses on the cognitions of family members and how these, in turn, shape individuals' behavior and the functioning of the family system. The use of the cognitive-behavioral perspective in family science has gained a quick and broad acceptance among social scientists and practitioners during the past decade. One reason for its success is that the basics of the approach are easy to learn and apply. Specifically, the approach maintains that a person who believes that he or she is a failure will -- because of this cognition -- act in certain self-defeating ways and have various self-deprecating feelings. The wide acceptance of the cognitive-behavioral approach rests on more than its simplicity: the approach has repeatedly proven itself in the laboratory and in the clinic. The knowledge readers of this volume will gain about the cognitive-behavioral approach provides them with tools that they can use to better understand not only the family interactions, but the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of individuals -- including themselves -- in the family setting.

Family businesses prosper by pursuing unconventional strategies. Because they are values-driven and think very long-term, they take approaches not popular with current management fashion or most companies. That is the key to their competitive advantage. However, family businesses must find ways to simultaneously serve business needs and family goals, which require very different priorities and principles. As a result, they must think paradoxically, and find insights that single-purpose enterprises need not contemplate. They must dare to be different. Family business requires a different governance system, but it must nevertheless be one that can be controlled. Building on insights from the worldâ??s premier family business executive education course, this book offers the Unconventional Wisdom needed to leverage the strategic and cultural uniqueness of a family business for enduring success.

Can Israel be both Jewish and truly democratic? How can a nation-state, which incorporates a large national minority with a distinct identity of its own be a state of all its citizens? Written by two eminent Israeli scholars, a professor of constitutional law and a historian, Alexander Yakobson and Amnon Rubinstein are the first to treat Zionism and Israeli experience in light of other states' experiences and in particular of newly established states that have undergone constitutional changes and wrestled with issues of minorities. Citing various European, constitutions and laws, the authors explore concept of a Jewish State and its various meanings in the light of international law, and the current norms of Human Rights as applied to other democratic societies compatible with liberal democratic norms and conclude that international reality does not accord with the concept which regards a modern, liberal democracy as a culturally "neutral" and a nationally colourless entity. In light of the new political map in Israel and the prospect of future disengagement from the West Bank, Israel and the Family of Nations is essential reading for all those who wish to understand Israel's future challenges.

First of all, I decided to write this little book to create a basic legal body that determines the rights and duties of all the Family members in all possible matters that they face as I have found that most of the books and researches which treat the subject focuses mostly and sometimes solely on the economic matters and how a company owned by dynasty can be ruled by or -in other kind of researches- they talk about how to write such a legal body (constitution) without giving any example. On the contrary, I have found that there are much important matters that are equal in their importance to the economic matters of the family.This book, which is written in a sociological research-style, will give the basic steps you need to follow, so that you can then write your own legal body for your family. It consists of 54 laws that form a vital example of what a Family Constitution should be written by. At this point, you -my dear reader- should notice that this book was not written so that you should follow it blindly, but you will only get the advantage of its main notion when you adapt it to what can meet the cultural conditions that you live by and the principles which you and your partner have built your union on.
