I found their experience-based writing infinitely more identifiable when compared to books waxing poetic on theories and hypotheticals. Parents Who Lead provides actionable advice on how to strengthen one's career while cultivating relationships rooted in trust and gratitude in family and work alike.
There's a lot in Stew's work about reciprocal dialogues. Of asking questions like, “Here’s what I think is important to you, do I have that right? Tell me more.” Questions that say “you are important”. In this book, he suggests we ask these questions at home.
I especially liked his story about a birthday conversation with his children. It's what led to his writing this book. He asked his children, "How would you like me to spend the rest of my productive life? What would you want me to be doing and how by my doing whatever it is that you are suggesting, would that make your life better?"
My children now know what I want for my birthday this year.
