Stay Centered in the Tug-of-War between Work and Family
Led by Michelle Cove, journalist and author of I Love Mondays: and other confessions from devoted working moms
Bestselling author, award-winning filmmaker and journalist Michelle Cove shares practical strategies and reassuring advice in this 60-90 minute talk geared to help bring down guilt levels and ease daily stress for women constantly juggling parenting and family.
Cove explores the 11 biggest concerns voiced by working mothers around the country, from "How do I feel less guilty while I'm traveling for work?" to "I'm terrible at multitasking!". She provides practical, easy-to-implement advice from top experts (executive coaches, psychologists, physicians, teachers, life coaches, and so on); other working moms; and her own personal experiences. She also shares humbling, often hilarious, stories and confessions that will resonate with all working moms.
Strategies include successful ways to:
break the "sorry loop" where moms apologize by default to co-workers and family
volunteer at your child's school without falling behind at work
handle harsh comments about working moms from frenemies and critics
deal with the sorrow of missing your child’s event/milestone due to hectic work schedules
socialize with co-workers and still make it home for family dinner
