Step 1: Clarify your own goals


Recently the story of a man went through the press, which was terminated after six months of parental leave on the first working day. This shows two things: such discrimination now also affects men. And the compatibility of childhood and career is still a big problem.

Therefore, communication is important for the entrepreneur Sophia von Rundstedt: "An employee should think carefully about the personal goals:

  • How do I work, where can I cut back? Can be there around the clock for the child, with perhaps negative consequences for the career?
  • Or a career with management responsibility, less time for the child?

Step 2: Talk to the boss in good time


"Then you should talk to the boss about what this decision for the career and the Company means ", says von Rundstedt, herself head of 300 employees, of which 70 percent women.

Many things can happen during parental leave. "It is called to weigh together and find suitable models," explains the mother of two children. Unfortunately, flexible regulations are often subject to rigid laws.

Women fail at their bosses


Communicating is not always the right solution: A recent US study by the management consultants Bain and Company shows that women often fail in their job due to male-dominated role models and missing female role models.

The women feel especially under supported by their direct bosses too little.

How the quota can help


Sophia von Rundstedt also knows such prejudices. The women's quota could help clean up the roll-up, but she did not go far enough.

"We need the quota not only on supervisory boards, but also on the boards," she says. What can women do themselves? "Networks," advises von Rundstedt, who is involved in Working Moms. "Especially women often underestimate how important this is for their own progress."

The right company and the right partner


And if the boss or his own partner is not ready to compromise?

"Then," says von Rundstedt, "you should think twice about whether the company is still the right one, or to what extent the relationship with the partner bears."

    Dear Mrs. Janson,
    It would be nice if problem-solving approaches could be so easily defined - you look for a new job as a mother or - if I understand you correctly - think longer about whether you should not change the partner, it does not work with the compromises. In reality, even as a traditionally married woman with KInd, they are a problem in the world of work - as a single person, I can not even imagine it. You are right, you must not only moan, you must try something new, so that at least our daughters can benefit from this fight and one day can actually have both. But right now that's as far as settling Greece's debts ......

    Best regards

    • Simone Janson

      Hello Mrs. Kirschner,
      there is a question mark in the title, and a male example is quoted, in the text a study is cited that confirms your opinion - and otherwise I quote Sophia von Rundstedt in direct or indirect speech. From where do you assume that I wrote that one could simply solve his problems in this way? Please read the somewhat more detailed interview with Sophia von Rundstedt, in which she addresses much more in detail, which was not possible in the 2000 characters of the column.
      On the basis we can then continue to discuss.
