Maternity Leave Returner
A scientific leader worked with us prior to and after her second maternity leave, preparing for the transitions out and back into role. We aligned expectations with her manager and she explored her strengths, networks, support structures, goals and vision for the return. She focused on balance, wellness and performance in combination. On return to work she explored her new identity, responsibilities and hopes and fears for herself and her team. She described the greatest benefit as the chance to speak without judgement to identify and plan the most impactful conversations at home and at work, that made her feel resourced and excited to return.
