Challenges with own parents, partner or children

Leaders are just the same underneath and certainly no immune to the stresses and strains of normal family life. In 2011, OvationXL’s team detected a significant rise in the number of coachees including themes to do with their relationship with aging parents, partner or with troublesome children. If what you are already doing isn’t working then it is time to do things differently.

Your new strengths and abilities

New techniques to tackle your challenges in a direct though sensitive way.

Did you know?

Census 2001 asked whether people provided unpaid care for a family member or friend and for how many hours. The resulting picture overall was one of a considerable amount of such care being provided - 5.2 million carers in England and Wales, including over a million providing more than 50 hours a week.

Who would benefit?

Those who bring family distractions to work.
