Parent as Leader in the workplace is about developing a culture that supports working parents and retains return to work parents, who have not only been invested in for their work now, also their work they will do in the future.
Parent as leader skills support parents to develop mental flexibility enabling them to overcome the internal struggle to thrive and excel at work and home. It is normal for parents to feel distracted, there are many moving parts between work and family life. What’s not ok is when parents don’t have the know-how to balance work and home in healthy, productive ways. Parents supported with Parent as Leader skills feel like they do have work-life balance skills and when a company chooses to offer them these skills, they feel they are in an organisation they want to be a part of.
Research has shown that lack of support for parents affects retention. From lower revenues to loss of innovation, a parent’s disengagement or departure from the workplace can affect a company’s bottom line far beyond the fairness of gender parity. McKinsey & Company found that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15 percent more likely to have financial returns above their respective industry medians.
