Ep 36 Returning from parental leave with confidence with Lizzie Martin
In this episode of the Influence & Impact podcast for female leaders I’m chatting to Lizzie Martin of Work Life Mother about how to return from parental leave with confidence and how as leaders we can support parents with this transition. We talk about how you can prepare for your return, negotiation with your line manager, the skills we learn from parenting and getting yourself back in the work mindset before you return. Lizzie is an executive coach, former senior leader of 10 years within the retail space, mother to two sassy daughters and founder of Work Life Mother. For the past 3 years she has been working with individuals and organisations providing parental transition coaching - aimed to support any professional returning from a period of parental leave so that they can come back to work with confidence and impact. Lizzie says “It was when I was on my first maternity leave that I truly understood the complexities of returning to work as a new parent. I saw many women who were left to figure it all out on their own, it's a particularly overwhelming period of what can be a long fulfilling career yet without the right support many women experience self-doubt, low confidence and poor career development support and this can mean they downshift their careers or leave the workforce altogether.” Visit Lizzie’s website www.worklifemother.com to download her free toolkit for managers, to find out about her upcoming masterclasses or for 1:1 coaching support.
