Moms vs. Management: Parents Make Awesome Managers
    Monday March 12, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Courtyard Marriott (Brazos) (300 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    How many books on management have your read and how many parenting manuals and apps have you downloaded since your kids arrived on the scene? How much of what you’ve learned has been “on the job” of parenting — and all the multi-tasking and emotional resilience that requires? Have you ever thought to apply those same techniques to managing clients or people inside your own organization? Hear a light-hearted conversation from our experts on techniques they’ve used and how to make the best of both worlds. Learn about how the principles of raising children directly apply to being a good manager of people. Topics may include: Parallel play is not real play — challenges of cooperation, collaboration and negotiation; Use your inside voice — the importance of communication and active listening; No means no — applying praise, understanding consequences and other disciplinary measures; You can’t have it all — challenges of working parents towards achieving a healthy live/work balance.
