Last week, the internal training division of my company sent out the June schedule of one-hour seminars they hold regularly on various topics.
One of the seminars, entitled “The Working Parent,” was described as follows:
This workshop is for anyone interested in learning ways to assess our current lifestyle, set priorities and choose realistic goats. Review tools to help meet the multitude of demands facing the working parent. Topics discussed will include:
- Challenges Facing the Modern Working Parent
- What Matters Most
- Meeting Your Own Needs
I was interested in attending this seminar until I checked my calendar and discovered that it was taking place during the all-but-compulsory managerial training I’ll be attending next week, away from my family at a hotel in Connecticut for two whole days.
