How working parents can lead more purposeful lives, characterized by harmony, connection, and impact.

Parents in today's fast-paced, disorienting world can easily lose track of who they are and what really matters most. But it doesn't have to be this way. As a parent, you can harness the powerful science of leadership in order to thrive in all aspects of your life.

Drawing on the principles of his book Total Leadership - a best seller and popular leadership-development program used in organizations worldwide - and on their experience as researchers, educators, consultants, coaches, and parents, Stew Friedman and coauthor Alyssa Westring offer a robust, proven method that will help you gain a greater sense of purpose and control. It includes tools illustrated with compelling examples from the lives of real working parents that show you how to: design a future based on your core values; engage with your children in fresh, meaningful ways; cultivate a community of caregiving and support, in all parts of your life; and experiment to discover better ways to live and work. Powerful, practical, and indispensable, Parents Who Lead is the guide you need to forge a better future, foster meaningful and mutually rewarding relationships, and design sustainable solutions for creating a richer life for yourself, your children, and your world. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A must read for working parents, except...

This book is well with your time. it will help you learn win-win integrations with work and family life, reducing the need for sacrificing one for the other. Except: Skip to part 1 (37 minutes in). The author started salesy and blabbed on for the first section. Then a major shift in the writing occurred and made me glad I stuck around. the narrator's voice was fine, listen to the sample to hear for yourself. The print book has amazing reviews. Just skip the first 37 minutes of this audiobook and you'll love it too.

Annoying voice
