Parents Who Lead

The Leadership Approach You Need to Parent with Purpose, Fuel Your Career, and Create a Richer Life
 

** WCNY Response to COVID-19 **
 
Stew Friedman, organizational psychologist at the Wharton School, will lead an exclusive webinar for the Wharton Club of New York to discuss concepts in his acclaimed newly released book, Parents Who Lead which he co-authored with Alyssa Westring.  He will discuss the evidence-based path for parents to lead more purposeful lives, characterized by greater harmony, connection and impact in all parts of life.

Parents in today's fast-paced disorienting world can easily lose track of who they are and what really matters most.  But it doesn't have to be this way. It is possible for parents to harness the powerful science of leadership in order to thrive in all aspects of their lives.
 
"The skills that define great leaders at work are surprisingly relevant to becoming a great parent at home. This book
won't just help you identify those skills—it's a step-by-step guide for putting them into practice."
—Adam Grant, Wharton Professor, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take
