Virtual Chapter Meeting: It's All in the Family: Coaching Tips for Working Parents and Their Leaders

Working from home as an executive is challenging enough; add in having children going back to school virtually and it becomes a whole new struggle. In this virtual fireside-style chat, Executive Leadership Coach and CEO of Excelerate, Kimberly Gerber will discuss the challenges, stressors, and opportunities that working parents are experiencing in light of COVID-19 and virtual or hybrid learning.

During this time, Kimberly will discuss how this new set up has impacted her and her family while also sharing coping strategies parents and managers can use to make the best of their new reality. In addition, viewers will discover how coaches can best coach their clients who are parents themselves and/or who coach leaders who have to manage, and sometimes accommodate, the working parents on their teams.

2020 has put parents in a very unique situation. Yet even in the toughest of circumstances, silver linings emerge and this situation is no exception. Kimberly will share the potential upsides of the at-home nature of our current lives, and provide resources for coaches to help their clients shift perspectives and employ strategies to meet day-to-day challenges with confidence as we embark on the start of a new - and very different - school year.

Takeaways from this event include:

 - Discovering key coping strategies that parents and managers can use to make the best of this new reality
 - Access to Kimberly's executive parenting resource. This toolkit allows working parents to create an effective daily schedule, teach their kids to set goals, and build a family dynamic where everyone feels proud (and rewarded) for their contribution toward each other's success and sanity!
