There are plenty of parenting books out there. But working moms and dads have never had a trusted, go-to guide just for them — one that coaches them on how to do well at work, be the loving and engaged parents they want to be, and remain true to ourselves in the process.
That is the focus of Workparent: The Complete Guide to Succeeding on the Job, Staying True to Yourself, and Raising Happy Kids, Daisy Dowling’s book aimed at finding balance and meeting while both working and parenting. Cal Newport calls it “A must-read for anyone struggling with the dual challenges of careers and kids." The book, says Allbirds Chief People Officer Laila Tarraf, “speaks to you as a whole person and encourages you to think of yourself as a whole person as well.”
Dowling will join us in Boca for a conversation about her book, parenting, and the challenges of balance, meaning, work, and engagement.
