I have spent nearly 20 years consulting to many of the most admired companies in the world on women's leadership and development and creating family-friendly work cultures. In 2009, I started work on my first book (published in February 2012) The Libra Solution: Shedding Excess and Redefining Success at Work and at Home which shows women and men a way of living, working, and parenting that allows them to enjoy - rather than feeling perpetually overwhelmed by - the pace of their lives. The book combines extensive reserach with my own very personal experience of raising children in a dual-career marriage.
The dedication in my book encapsulates many of my priorities.
For all the women and men balancing careers and parenting, trying to rasie strong and resilient children, trying to create and live in egalitarian marriages that are mutually satisfying and deeply rewarding, and trying to leave the world a better place then when they came.
My experience of growing up as one of seven children, of an early career as an investment professional followed by a long-term consulting career, and of partnering with my husband to raise our sons over the last 14 years have all been key influences in my writing, my thinking and my life.
