Parental Transition Programme

One-to-One Parent Coaching – with exceptional coaches helps them to consider the essential aspects of achieving a successful parental transition and future career progression. That means they are more likely to not just stay in your organisation but also to thrive. We time these sessions to coincide with critical transition points.

Workshops or group coaching – for groups of parents at a similar transition stage will allow you to build networks in the organisation, essential for sharing experiences, normalising challenges and problem-solving. These communities are critical in developing a culture where your people can reconcile work and life and reach their full potential.

‘Work, Family & You’

We launched this platform in 2021 to host high-value content created by us and co-created with partner clients. Rather than continue to monetise the digital content offering, we took the significant step to support the platform and launch it on the foundational principle of ‘open access’. This approach can increase your employee engagement and will encourage your working parents, carers, managers and those wondering about parenthood to explore the resources confidently.

“What a valuable way to spend 90 minutes. Having not had any formal coaching before I was unsure how the session would go, but I came out feeling empowered with some great tools to manage work/life balance more effectively and felt validated in the decision I had made to date.”

“I’m really glad that I made time for this workshop, it was very informative and good to be able to speak in an open and confidential environment with people that understand what it is like to return to work, after having a child. I think we are all very fortunate that we have this resource.”

Parental Leaver, Workshop Participant, Investment Bank

“There was a good opportunity for audience participation and I got a sense you could ask off topic questions and they would be addressed which was great. One of the best things about courses like this is the feeling you are not alone- keep it up. Thank you.”
