It’s time to remove the stigma from working part time!
In fact, let’s go ahead and put “part-time stigma” into the same trash-can where the German concept of “Rabenmutter" (bad moms!) belongs too, as well as the continued prejudice that you can’t have it both “family & career”.
This is what Johanna Fink and I discussed in a conversation about innovative & fluid work models for her podcast “Führen in Teilzeit” (“Leadership in part-time positions”) ❤️🎧 As a business-coach and trainer, Johanna works with businesses and their young leaders to develop part-time solutions that benefit everyone. It’s something that’s important to us at MyCollective too, so I was really inspired by our conversation.
What I think this is all about - isn’t just finding the right kind of work model for you, but to hit all three points on what I think of as a kind of magic triangle △✨
🍼 a care model that works for you and your family;
🤯 a mental load solution to divide the family tasks between everyone on your team at home, so that you’re not carrying it on your own; and
👩🏼💻 a work model that allows you to achieve your career goals while also having a life.
I firmly believe that it’s a model that would make all of us happier and more successful at living life - not just working parents 🌻
