Taking Hold of Our Work-Life Balance
Managing personal and professional lives is a challenging but crucial part of being a principal.
Juggling work and family life can feel overwhelming at times, especially for women. Center for Women in Leadership fellows Jessica Gomez and Andrea Thompson sit down with speaker and former principal Pam Gildersleeve-Hernandez to discuss how principals can strike the right balance between their personal and professional lives. In this episode we discuss:
- Unique challenges faced by women leaders
- The importance of creating and maintaining boundaries
- Modeling/setting expectations for staff
Pam Gildersleeve-Hernandez is an experienced educator and former principal, as well as a renowned speaker, author, and coach. You can find her on Twitter at @pgilders.
