Gaia Marchisio Tenured Faculty Enhancement Leave Program

My area of expertise is family business (FB): the most prominent form of organization throughout the world, contributing to employment and economic growth. For the Family Business Network, I will lead a global interdisciplinary team of FB experts exploring and developing innovative interpretative frameworks to understand the unique rules, pattern of interaction, and emotional climate of families in business. This work is critical as FBs are different due to the influence of family dynamics on business decisions. The project will impact the international reputation of Coles, and is congruent with KSU goals #1 & 3 of the new strategic plan.
