About the Book : – In this Working Mother magazine book, leadership expert Jamie Woolf shares inspiring stories, practical strategies and interactive assessment tools to illustrate how the best workplace practices can bring more joy and success to family life. Drawing from two decades of experience, she lays out her “best practices” to improve your communication, create a healthy family culture, discover your parent leadership style, manage crises, thrive during adolescence, and juggle work and family priorities. Readers will explore common leadership dilemmas, including: When to step in and when to step back How to maximize the learning opportunities that come from mistakes How to stay connected with a pesky toddler or testy teenager How to create rituals that strengthen the family’s esprit de corps When to push kids and when to let them quit How to feel less like a maid or short-order cook and more like a skilled leader capable of unleashing the potential of others. Mom-in-Chief addresses real quandaries and covers everything that smart career-oriented women need to know in order to fulfill their parenting potential and navigate challenges with skill and grace. This book is a welcome reminder that leading a family doesn’t mean churning out living masterpieces, or indulging children with the perfect everything. It means inspiring without pushing your own agenda, nurturing without micromanaging, encouraging without aiming to win a best-of-show competition, and expecting the best without ignoring the joy of childhood.
