My guest today believes it's time to acknowledge that not all working women are interested in climbing the corporate ladder or securing the corner office.
In fact, most women want and need flexible, less life-consuming work to accommodate their real lives.
And it's not weak, lacking ambition or letting down the sisterhood to pursue professional fulfillment and financial security through less lofty, or headline-making ways.
Kathryn Sollmann has created and led hundreds of conferences and workshops that help women sustain and advance careers as they blend work and life.
She's a regular feature in the press, talking and writing about women's work vs. family issues, challenging the status quo, debunking work-life myths, and helping women work around corporate obstacles.
Recognized as a thought leader in the women and work space, her book—Ambition Redefined: Why the Corner Office Doesn’t Work for Every Woman & What to Do Instead—is the everyday woman’s guide to developing her own brand of ambition and success and finding many lucrative ways to lean “in-between” alongside caregiving for children and aging parents.
In the book, Kathryn calls it like it is; everyday women want and need flexible work that allows them to unapologetically pursue their own brand of ambition and success. She shows them how without sacrificing themselves, their careers or their families.
