Cutting ourselves some slack in 2020 & beyond: looking at being a working parent through a more compassionate lens.

Being a working parent inevitably brings with it a constantly evolving, never-ending set of demands and expectations as parents work hard to accommodate the needs of two competing contexts.

It is a tough gig and it can be all too easy to be self-critical as you keep spinning the numerous plates that make up your life. What would it be like if we could be more self-compassionate and thoughtful as we navigate this most challenging of roles?

Using some well known and easily applied models and asking questions that come from a coaching perspective, this webinar is an opportunity to step back and reflect on how life is for you as a working parent, what you can celebrate and what you may like to change or do differently.

This webinar forms part of the Women in Innovation Programme: however attendance is not restricted, and all genders are welcome!

The Building Success webinar series has been designed to provide practical advice and tools for women innovators. The series explores topics ranging from marketing through to intellectual property, funding & finance and HR & recruitment. Click here for more information on the series and previous webinars.
