Welcome to another edition of #3NoMoreThan5 in 5 from the wild! Greetings from the Bay Area. I am here visiting with potential partners, collaborators that I’m looking at various projects with, so I come by way of Los Angeles. So excited to be there last week for the wedding of one of my fabulous cousins.
While I was there, I had a chance to spend some time with my “mommy cousins.” These women all have children of various stages; Newborn, little ones, then middle school. They have different careers, different spaces and I thought what a great opportunity to learn! Since many of you know, I chose to not to have children. I thought I’d really like to hear from them about what they experienced, what were the challenges in that transition as they became new moms, what were some the lessons they learned, what were some of the things that they had to work through and perhaps how do they learn and grow from that and apply those skills today.
For this #3NoMoreThan5 in 5 it’s mostly a “hey, good to see you!” It’s been a minute, took a bit of a hiatus over the holidays, so thank you for your patience and happy new year everyone! In the coming video clips I want to be able to share what I learned from them about the challenges they experienced. I’d like to discuss what ways we as individuals, managers, leaders can do to help support and elevate these women who are also moms. And then perhaps think a little bit about these general lessons, whether you’re a mommy or not. It could be applied in a variety of ways to you and your career development in the workforce.
So stay tuned! More is coming in our next editions of #3NoMoreThan5. It’s mommy hood! How to manage it, lessons learned, ways we can support and help moms and parents, continue to feel engaged/valued and allow them to grow their careers to whatever level of success they choose.
Thanks for tuning in! Appreciate everyones support! I’ll be back with more #3NoMoreThan5. For now, happy new year! Cheers!
