Overview

Working Fathers is the first hands-on guide with a proven and effective game plan to help fathers as well as mothers, employees as well as managers, succeed in managing the competing demands of home and work. Based on extensive research conducted by The Fatherhood Project at the Families and Work Institute and on James Levine's DaddyStress/Daddy Success seminar for corporations, this book shows how work and family are not separate spheres for men, how getting it right at home actually contributes to productivity on the job, how father friendliness benefits working mothers, and how forward-looking companies are making their workplace father friendly for competitive advantage. Working Fathers is filled with practical strategies for enhancing the quality of both work and family life. These include strategies to stay connected to your child whether you're at home, at work, or traveling; make quality time for you and your spouse; and connect with teachers, group leaders, coaches, and other important people in your family's life to help your kids succeed. It is the first guide to show both individuals and organizations how to create the father-friendly workplace.

Redressing an imbalance frequently prevailing on the two-career family front is Working Fathers, a combined overview and guidebook for parents who recognize that the conflict of working and parenting is not claimed by only by mothers. James A. Levine, a lecturer, writer and director of The Fatherhood Project at the Families and Work Institute in New York City, aided by Todd L. Pittinsky, offers academic, professional and anecdotal support to back up his observations in boardroom and back room of fathers who want to be more available and involved with their families while managing their careers. Specific strategies for maximizing involvement and effectiveness are tailored to both the workplace (aimed at both employers and the employed) and the home. Hands-on and persuasive, this is a valuable treatment of an often scanted family matter.

What People Are Saying

Arlie Hochschild
Such an important book on such a vital topic -- must reading for all fathers.
Peter M. Senge
Few, if any, books can genuinely claim to offer equal benefits to companies, their members, and most importantly their members' spouses and children. This one can.
