Wellbeing for Working Parents
March 2020 update: We also offer a ‘Wellbeing for Working Parents’ workshop specifically aimed at COVID-19. See here.
Studies show the stress on working parents has never been greater. We’re living busier, more pressured lives, living further away from families and support systems and have the constant pressure of ‘always on’ technology. Working parents often feel torn between competing priorities, and the stress of trying to ‘do it all’ can lead to feelings of overwhelm, or even burnout.
In order for employees to feel happier, less stressed and more productive at work – it is vital that modern businesses support working parents with their own wellbeing.
In this signature workshop, created and delivered by a coach, parental wellbeing expert and popular parenting podcaster, working parents will learn practical, actionable and impactful tools to help navigate their working lives. Topics covered:
- Understand the concept of having it all versus being good enough.
- The reality of working parenthood – statistics from the latest studies.
- Focus on what matters and how to manage conflicting priorities.
- Get clarity on what’s working and not working.
- Create a practical plan to support you in feeling empowered and successful.
- Understand wellbeing for parents including asking for help, boundaries, and self-care.
This workshop is ideal for KIT days, supporting staff returning from paternity and maternity leave, or to provide on-going support to staff with children of all ages. Suitable for mothers, fathers and step-parents.
We also offer 1:1 coaching for working parents.
How it works
- Capacity: In order for this to be an effective, interactive coaching session, we find smaller groups work best and we recommend a maximum of 20 people.
- Duration: This workshop is delivered in person and can be 60 or 90 minutes. 1:1 coaching, webinars and bespoke packages are available upon request.
- Requirements: A screen for some slides.
Despite working parents making up for 1/3 of the workforce (approximately 11 million), work is still designed, organised and advertised to prevent people with caring responsibilities from reaching their potential.
