Covid-19 is a crisis for working parents. If you are working while caring for children, or manage staff who are, then this session is for you!
These webinars will be led by Daisy Dowling, Founder and CEO of Workparent, a specialty consulting firm in the U.S that provides solutions to corporations and U.S. Air Force. She is a working parent coaching expert, and author of ‘Workparent: Thrive in Your Career While Raising Happy Children’, a guidebook to working parenthood (published in May 202); she has been published extensively in Harvard Business Review and is a series Editor for HBR’s Working Parents series. Daisy will share specific techniques and tools for successfully handling the challenges of your dual role in these unique circumstances, including ways to “dual hat” effectively when working and caregiving, managing your routine, schedule and self, how to communicate effectively as a professional and parent and feel more in control, and maintaining personal energy and resilience in the face of current pressures. In advance of the session, participants will have the chance to put specific working-parent questions or concerns for Daisy to respond to.
