WeAreTheCity Rising Star Award winner Verena Hefti, Founder and CEO of social enterptrise ‘Leaders Plus’, has launched a new podcast which is dedicated to supporting parents who wish to progress in their leadership careers.
Leaders with Babies has been created with parents and their career goals in mind. It is aimed at those on maternity leave, adoption leave or shared parental leave (and the three years afterwards) who remain ambitious about their career whilst also feeling passionate about being the best parent they can be.
Each episode will include an inspiring business leader to give you valuable advice, expert guidance and helpful tips on progressing your leadership career whilst raising a young family.
Series one features guests such as Dame Helena Morrissey; a mother of 9 and Head of Personal Investing at Legal and General, Nick Wilkie; outgoing Chief Executive of the NCT and Dame Geraldine Strathdee OBE; former National Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England.
As you listen, guests will share the challenges they have overcome and give advice and solutions which have helped them with their own personal situations. The podcast is a must listen for any new parent who wishes to find the balance between career progression and perfect parenting.
Verena Hefti spoke ahead of the podcast launch, saying:
“Too often, ambitious men and women feel they must choose between pursuing a leadership career they love and enjoying their young family. It doesn’t have to be this way. The Leaders with Babies podcast has been developed to help inspire and encourage new parents so that they can combine family life and career progression.”
