Why Being a Mother Makes Me A Better Leader

Recruiting Social asked 11 Women: “Why Being A Mother Makes Me A Better Leader” See Talent Lab’s very own Tess Sloane share her insights below. 

Being a mother I have to be intentional with my time.

Each person on my team has individual strengths, values and passions, so in order to lead I need to learn how to access and expand each person’s unique contribution – my boys are a daily reminder of this. The most impactful thing my children have taught me in business is to keep things in perspective. Career is one part of someone’s whole beautiful life. I am a big believer in creating the conditions for people to show up as their whole selves to work and I see how it impacts the business and their personal fulfillment. My sons enable me to see joy in the simple things and never take myself too seriously.
