This is an outstanding service that working parents should take advantage of when returning to work after a break. This will help you get perspective & work through any challenges that are unique to you. My Coach was wonderful - patient, caring and practical
I had been back at work after having my first baby for seven months when I realised I needed some additional support and engaged Parents At Work for three coaching sessions. These were brilliant; my Coach provided a different perspective and challenged my existing thinking in how I approached my career, work, family and self.
We have received extremely strong feedback about the Parents at Lendlease program delivered by Parents at Work for both our female and male employees. The one on one coaching has been extremely successful offering our employees a personalised service to focus on their career and juggling the challenges of family and work.
I was given some great tools and guidance for getting over these "hurdles". I can't recommend this coaching program enough for new, or seasoned parents, or parents to be.
I wanted to share my feedback following the seminar yesterday. Even though I have been on maternity leave once before, I found it very helpful. The facilitators were great – they both speak from experience (personally and professionally) and it was helpful to be able to have a mini coaching group session with one of them at the end of the morning. It was also great to be able to walk away with a toolkit booklet
Thank you for the awesome program. It helped me realise other mums have the same challenges, helped me lift the constraints I have been placing on myself & gave me tools to make it happen such as using positive language when negotiating flexibility, getting mentors, taking action and networking. Thanks for the kick start.
Thanks for the Seminar. It was fantastic, the presenters were so professional, yet down to earth and I really felt I could open up about some of the issues I was facing. It was great to leave knowing that I can have greater confidence in my ability as a mum and a professional to get things working really well and that I can go after what I really want.
