Parenting is not just about looking after the kid, providing them everything, fulfilling their necessities, and so on. But, as a working mother who was on maternity leave, one can learn many skills and imply the same in her office. So, let us see some of the new working skills that one has honed as a mother!
● Management skills
● Management skills are one of the most important ones, be it in parenting or work life. You might have already got the hang of how to balance the management of home and kids. This will help you in managing and balancing your work along with projects with colleagues. Also, you would have learned some negotiation skills too. Make use of that!
● Communication skills
Did you know that communication skills are vital to get your dream job or dream position? Yes, it is! Good communication can beat every other possible skill, as an assurance of your work entirely depends on how you speak and convince your clients or higher officials. When you teach something to someone, you tend to learn it fast rather than learn on your own. This is when your kids help you improve your communication skills; you teach them every possible thing to make the communication go easy and smooth enough!
● Problem-solving skills
Everything has one or the other problems, be it a parenting life or work life. As a mother, you somehow learn to tackle issues that often come uninvited and unknowingly. It is all about how you try to fix it. This skill will undoubtedly help you while working as a team head or part of the team. If you can solve an issue quickly, just like how you managed the problem related to kids, then you are sorted!
● Skills of organising
As a mother, you would have to juggle organising toys, food, bed, and everything for your kid. This would have built up your balancing and organising skills. This will help you keep updated on the works you are doing to go neat and smooth. You will try to plan, schedule, and start working in a more organised way when compared to before, as you will have other priorities in life to keep track of!
● Time management skills
Managing time is one of the essential things for every employee to be aware of. This resembles respect and confidence in what you are doing. As a mother, you would have tried coping with time in feeding your infant, their bedtime, their wake up time, bath time, and what not! Everything goes on time, and there would be no changes in the timings, especially for eating and going to bed. This will help you cultivate time management skills and help you be early at your office, cope with timings and deadlines of projects, and be the first to be present at meetings and conferences. Well, they help you to be the best version of yourself!
