Most fathers today strive both to be successful in their careers and to be loving, involved dads. It sometimes seems like an impossible tug-of-war. But it doesna€™t have to be. The Working Dada€™s Survival Guide helps dads understand they are not alone, and offers a series of concrete time and life management strategies that enable them to succeed in their careers while alsobeing the present, involved fathers they always wanted to be. Through personal stories and interviews with dozens of working dads, as well as actionable advice and useful self-assessment exercises, Scott Behson will help you feel more confident in succeeding in both parts of your life. Specifically, The Working Dada€™s Survival Guide will help dads: a€c Understand that most dads face the same struggles they do. a€c Articulate their career and family priorities through reflection and self-assessment exercises and by reading about other dadsa€™ experiences. a€c Assess their current workplacea€™s and employera€™s attitudes towards work and family. This can lead to a better understanding of ways dads can pursue work-family balance and what barriers may be in their way. a€c Maintain and enhance their work productivity through better prioritization, planning and focus, as well as more efficient time management. a€c Understand how to create, negotiate for, and utilize workplace flexibility. a€c Understand their rights regarding paternity leave. a€c Protect family time from the creeping demands of work. a€c Improve their focus on the most important aspects of parenting, and gain a better understanding of how wives, families and children benefit from present, involved fathers. a€c Carve out a€œme timea€ - exercise and social activities - needed to de-stress, renew energy and maintain mental health. a€c Build a support network of other working dads so that they can give and receive friendship, emotional support and tangible help. A portion of the booka€™s proceeds is donated to A Better Balance, an advocacy organization promoting family-supportive workplace and social policy.
