5.0 out of 5 stars Leadership at Home is Foundation for Leading at Work, November 11, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Be Real: Inspiring Stories for Leading at Home and Work (Paperback)
A sea of change in relationships is taking place as everyone adjusts to the new reality of women being better educated and in some cases more preferred than men in the workforce. Especially unsettling to some men is their role as second-best earner in the family.

This structural change in the balance of men and women in the workplace and at home is a thread that winds through this book by Daniel G. Mulhern. Mulhern says, "I'd venture that nothing is more important to us than our children, whether the "our" is the general "our" of community or the intense "our" of the young ones in our own families. And that change is profoundly affecting the workplace of the home and the major "customers" in it--those kids. Women are on the march in the outside world of work, but have we in our society begun to see the depth and expanse of these changes at home?"

The true career opportunities at home and work need to be the right fit in terms of our personal visions and goals. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis pointed out, "If you bungle raising your children, nothing else that you do matters much." She spoke the truth and Mulhern expands upon this truth through real stories he and people he knows have experienced in recent years.

This is a book every child-raising man and woman should read to better understand how leadership at home and work is critical for family, organizational and community success. Leadership development is self-development.
