Roberta Pereira is a Tony-nominated, Olivier-award winning theatre producer. She’s currently the producing director of “The Playwrights Realm”, an off-Broadway theatre company committed to amplifying the voices of emerging playwrights. She’s the solo mom of 20-month old Bianca.

In today’s episode of Parents at Work, Tom Spiggle and co-host, Lori Mihalich-Levin, introduce us to 2 working dads in the HR field: Wiley Simmons and Adam Calli. Human resources are generally a women-dominated industry, yet men contribute a unique and valuable perspective.

 

Wiley Simmons is a single father of 2 and came to the HR field through a complete accident. Having an executive and administrative assistant background, he took an admin assistant temp job in the human resources field, and his boss was so impressed with his work, he was offered a position as a benefits coordinator. What he found was that with being prior military, the rules and regulations of the HR profession, as well as his enjoyment of helping people and interacting with staff, turned out to be the perfect career choice for him. 

 

Adam Calli is the proud father of 2 and an HR professional. He is also the principal consultant and founder of the human resources consulting firm, Arc Human Capital, LLC. Prior to working in HR and having children, hotel operations were Adam’s specialty, but it was not especially conducive to family life. He did something quite revolutionary for 2002: he saved up his leave time and took 3 weeks FMLA leave after the birth of his son.

Both HR and non-HR professionals alike will enjoy hearing this discussion on industry trends, and finding that perfect balance between work and life. There’s something for everyone here. Please join us!

Can parenting and entrepreneurship go hand in hand? Many working parents believe the myth that you either have to sacrifice home life or business success—you cannot have both. My guest, Dan Kuschell, is here to tell you that this simply isn’t true! Dan is a serial entrepreneur with 12 successful businesses to his name. He delights in training budding business owners to use strategies to get more clients and develop a business that works for them. Dan’s success has been great, but he considers his family the greatest blessing of all.

Luckily, Dan believed in the power of coaching, and he sought the help he needed to balance and repurpose his life. Dan thinks that there are three questions every working parent needs to ask themselves. What do you want? Who are you? What do you stand for? Dan has managed to not just balance, but integrate his parenting into his businesses. He prioritizes time with his children and makes business decisions with the family in mind. It’s all about his mindset from the outset, and you can get that mindset too! Listen this week to start making some changes in your own life.

Never Split the Difference

Fatherhood is one of life’s greatest responsibilities, and yet so many of us feel completely unequipped for the role. Many first time and long time dads find it difficult to engage with their children, or otherwise feel overwhelmed with the pressures of work. How can we begin to redefine Fatherhood, and start building up intentional relationships with our kids? Luckily, we have places like Daddy Saturday to turn to. I’m talking to Justin Batt, Chief Daddy at Daddy Saturday, about how he has transformed his relationship with his kids, even as a working parent. 

 

Daddy Saturday is a website dedicated to building resources and communities for fathers. It started when Justin’s oldest daughter was born, and he found himself being the sole caregiver on Saturdays while Mom was at work. These Saturdays with his kids became precious as he intentionally planned ways to have quality time, rather than simply checking out on his phone or becoming preoccupied with work. Now, he and his children are having grand adventures and encouraging people from across the world to do the same. 

 

Justin is going to share all of his tips for Dads who want to transform their relationships with their kids. While it does require a mindset shift and a commitment to put the phone down, building intentional relationships with kids is incredibly easy. Fatherlessness is currently in a state of crisis, but Dads like Justin are trying to take back Saturday and encourage Dads to engage and take ownership of their responsibility. Yes, life and technology have their pressures and influences, but Justin is going to show us how easily we can build habits that will impact our children for a lifetime.

 

More in this episode: 

•    Being intentional and engaging with his kids on a Saturday became a community phenomenon. 

•    How Justin is encouraging other dads to change how they approach their weekends with kids. 

•    Fatherhood is a huge responsibility, but it’s also an opportunity. 

•    Be there for your kids during breakfast, or any other rallying point. 

•    Questions you can use to engage your kids. 

•    Why experiencing failure as kids can make strong adults. 

•    Justin tells the story of how he and his wife became business partners and life partners. 

•    Advice for Dads who want to start being more intentional. 

•    What is launching next for Justin and Daddy Saturday? 

•    A little bit of planning makes a world of difference. 

•    How to engage your kids as they get older. 

•    Focus on peak performance in our parenting, not just our career or our health. 

•    Learn all the nuts and bolts of how Justin runs Daddy Saturday. 

•    Sometimes, low-tech is best.

You believe in your vocation or career that your time and energy is important, but you also believe in your responsibilities as a parent. How can you find a balance between the two? Can you follow your career or civic passions while still showing up as a parent? There are also more expectations put on parents than ever before. Between career and that social pressure, it can feel like you are burning the candle at both ends. 

This is exactly why I am so excited to have my friend Will Mount on the show today. He gets the pressure. He feels the burden of wanting to care for his son well, while also pursuing a job as an attorney for Juvenile Defense. Social justice is important to both Will and his wife, but they also feel the weight of these unmet expectations. In this episode, Will will share what has worked for his family, how he has created his priorities to serve his family, and which challenges were particularly difficult for him. 

 

You are not alone! Let Will’s story be an example of how to make it work as a working parent. 

 

More in this episode: 

  • Why would someone want to work with Will or his law partner Judith? 
  • What it is like to be a parent with a high-stress job. 
  • Will and his wife both have work they believe in, but balancing that with parental responsibility is important.

  • Each age has their own challenges. 
  • Take time out to take care of yourself and your spouse/significant other. 
  • How having Liam has affected Will’s work life. 
  • Find opportunities to bond with your child. 
  • The surprising benefits of raising a child.

Between ferrying children around, keeping the house running, and trying to be successful in our career, it seems impossible for us to be able to get it all done in a day. Luckily, there are people like Ari Meisel in the world who are hacking productivity through sleek systems, outsourcing, and automation. I first heard about Ari from his book, Less Doing. I then became involved with a company he started, Get Leverage. Ari has recently left Get Leverage in order to refocus his life on his real passion: interacting with real people to give them real solutions to all of their productivity challenges.  

Productivity is all about reducing stress for Ari. He is a father of four kids, and he only works while the kids are in school. That means his working hours have to be productive. Today, Ari is going to share all of the systems he has in place for improving his productivity and prioritizing time with his family. After all, everything he does is to improve the quality of life for the people he loves. That passion is then imbued into each and every task he sets his mind to, and mindset is key. 

Listen this week for all the tips and strategies you can use to find a little more time in your day. Ari mentions so many wonderful resources and tools that you do not want to miss.

 

Show Highlights:

 

  • Why Ari left Get Leverage and decided to work with people again. 
  • How Ari works from 9-3 while his kids are at school.
  • Idea capture is Ari’s obsession.
  • What kinds of automation is Ari doing to streamline his life, and the important things he is not automating.

  • On-demand labor is key.
  • Ari’s personal goals for the new year. 
  • How the Less Doing Lab can help you in just about every area of your life.
