«The most obvious characteristic which was revealed during our study of these businesses was that of respect for others, which provided a strong base of support for these daughters as successors. This respect seemed easily transposed from the family relationships to the business relationships. […] Another striking result was the strong desire which these daughters manifested from an early age to be part of the family business, and the acceptance and encouragement of this plan by the father and other family business members. This contrasts sharply with previous findings in which daughters had not even considered joining the family business. […] The parents passed important values on to their daughters, which these daughters carried with them back into the business, thus assuring that the original founding values of the business are perpetuated. […] In this current study the absence of role conflict and ambiguity with parents or managers is surprising. […] The strong sense of family community and belongings and the absence of competition and rivalry amongst family members is another surprising result of this study» (p. 12-13)
