Move ahead in your career - without leaving your family behind.

What happens when you're no longer setting goals and chasing dreams that work for you alone? When the career choices you make have ripple effects on your family? Can you uproot your household for an overseas assignment even if it's a surefire path to promotion? How do you make time for your kids - or yourself - if you work more than one job?

These are some of the questions you ask yourself as you struggle to balance managing your career with managing your family. In Managing Your Career, experts provide answers to the challenges you face as a working parent, from negotiating a flexible schedule to overcoming the parenthood penalty whether you're taking time off, treading water, or reentering the workforce.

You'll learn to: assess the impact of downshifting on your career, your home life, and your identity; make time for professional development; communicate effectively with everyone, from your boss to your toddler; boost your impact and visibility, even with an erratic schedule; and build support systems to get you through rough patches at work and cope with childcare failures.
