Nov 8, 2022

Jamie Weiner, a psychologist, is co-founder of Quest for Legitimacy, a groundbreaking model for successfully navigating the unique struggle of growing up in a prominent family.

Along with Russ Haworth, a family business adviser, a series of intimate conversations with Rising Gen from around the world started with one simple question; “What is it like growing up in the land of giants?” After researchers from the University of Adelaide in Australia analyzed the conversations, The Quest for Legitimacy: How Children of Prominent Families Find Their Unique Place in the World brought the stories to life.

Moving forward, their mission is to support the Rising Generation in prominent families from around the globe to successfully navigate their “Quest” by helping them reduce their isolation, achieve agency, and discover the true contribution they can make in the world.
