“I just can’t do any more” has become the familiar cry of working parents struggling to combine our intense modern-day approach to professional work with our equally intense modern-day approach to parenting. The result is overload and exhaustion. At the same time, employers - fully aware that women comprise over half of the professional workforce - continually struggle to fully engage and retain professional women. The Libra Solution illuminates a different approach to the work and life puzzle, one that is beneficial for men and women, for families and organizations. The book tackles working differently, parenting differently, and creating new gender norms at home and at work.
The Libra Solution combines three powerful sources: extensive research with couples successfully combining careers and family life, insights from Levey’s 20-year consulting career to some of the most admired organizations in the world on women’s leadership and the creation of family-friendly work cultures, and her very personal story of raising children in a dual-career marriage. Levey provides inspiration and guidance – for individuals and organizations – to develop a more sustainable, satisfying and productive way to work and live in the 21st century.
