Advice for Working Dads Audiobook

Advice for Working Dads

Author: Harvard Business Review Narrator: Eric Michael Summerer, Jennifer Jill Araya Release Date: June 2021

Gone are the days when fathers were expected to put work first and family last. Today, men worldwide are redefining fatherhood and finding greater fulfillment both at work and at home. But old ways die hard. Many managers prefer the status quo, and fathers aren't finding the support and flexibility they need from their employers. Dads still feel pressure to downplay or hide their involvement in their children's lives. And even as more men step up as parents, across every level of society the burdens of parenting and running a household still fall unfairly on women. Fatherhood is one of the toughest jobs and the biggest responsibility you'll ever take on. Advice for Working Dads will teach you how to balance and integrate work and parenthood, how to navigate the common pitfalls at work, and how to find success when you're taking on twice as much-for the good of your family. This volume will help you: navigate workplaces and bosses that want you to forget you're a parent; spend your time at work and at home more purposefully; make time for yourself, your friends, and your hobbies; set reasonable expectations and limits in the always-on work culture; communicate better with your spouse or partner about careers, parenting, and housework; get the paternal leave you and your family need; set your family up for success; and more.

Talk to your toddler, your teen, your caregiver, your boss, your partner, yourself There are days in every working parent's life when it feels like you're screaming into the wind.

Advice for Working Moms Audiobook

Advice for Working Moms

Author: Harvard Business Review Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: May 2021

Your kid gets sick, so you leave work early-again. You're an expert at driving the carpool line and setting up for the morning meeting. You missed out on another stretch assignment because you don't have time. It's assumed you'll bake the treats for the fundraiser-and man the table. As a working mother you often draw the short straw. You carry most of the burden of caregiving and household chores-and your career suffers because of it. Bosses and coworkers assume that since you're focused on your family, you don't prioritize work, and they give crucial opportunities to those around you. Advice for Working Moms can help you alleviate this stress. Drawing on the wisdom of experts and parents alike, it will help you strike the right balance between family and work, all while navigating the long-standing bias against mothers and, more broadly, women in the workforce. You'll learn to: establish the boundaries you need at home and at work; negotiate flextime, time off, and maternity leave; facilitate your return to work after taking time off for caregiving; combat the 'motherhood penalty'; negotiate a more equal division of labor at home with your partner; and say no to 'office housework' and other menial tasks at work.
