All change affects your equilibrium - even a wonderful change like having a baby. Thankfully, you do not have to navigate the early months of motherhood alone. The New Parent Transition Program teaches you how to weave your personal and professional roles into a wonderful rich tapestry. It is a 3-step program of self-discovery and intentional change:
Life with Baby
Without the built-in structure, camaraderie and discipline of your workplace, you may feel isolated and lonely. There will be times when you find yourself wondering if this is way more than you can handle. You will gain an objective, impartial ear to sound out all your hopes, fears and concerns. Plus, we will explore all aspects of the life you desire through personal development exercises.
Planning and Preparing your Return to Work
Happiness, balance and a fulfilling life do not just happen; it takes planning. Plans work! You will learn how to assess the new realities of your life and determine the best way to organize it. You will discover how to embrace change and become more flexible in your thinking. We will devise strategies to streamline and integrate your personal and professional responsibilities.
Transitioning Back to Work
You are deprived of sleep, worried about leaving your baby, and people at work expect you to be the same person you were before this life-changing experience. Coaching support during this time will ease your transition back to work. You will be able to let off steam in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. Using concrete examples from your personal and professional life, you will master the choices of: must-do, let-it-go, delegate.
