Working with Power of the Parent®
Our support is based around 3 main areas, coaching, workshops and bespoke talent intiatives. We provide packages for both parents and businesses to help support you through parental leave and returning to work.
We work with parents on a 1 – 1 basis analysising your strengths and how you can maximise using them at home and at work. We’ll develop a toolkit or practical and easy to use tips and you prepare to leave, or return to work. We will support you with conversations that may have become difficult at work and can offer you CV support and interview prep if required.
We run online and ‘in real life’ workshops. Our online workshops are run through zoom, often in an evening, so you can join from the comfort of your sofa a lot of the time! Power of the Parent workshops are run locally in Leeds, and they’re an open invite. You’ll be sharing the session with other brilliant women who are either heading back to work or have already returned, but ultimately you’re all wanting to focus on your strengths and build a practical plan to do more of what you love and build your resilience.
The cost to recruit can roll up into the thousands, so retaining your nurtured and valued talent is often on the list of priorities for any business. It can be a challenge for businesses, but I’m here to help and guide you through best practice for retaining your teams and to build your reputation as a talent magnet. Working with strengths coaching and practical talent management approaches will keep people engaged, support your line managers and help you build a legacy of being a supportive and forward thinking employer.
