  Reboot 9.0: conversation about work, us and our kids?

We (the whole family ;) are going to Reboot.

And pretty much inline with my current feelings I proposed a session - Work, us and our kids

When work-life boundaries are blurring, where are the kids in this picture?

Me and Alexander at a project meetingWe don't have a work-life balance anymore. We work from home (ever heard those little voices on the background during a phone conference?); our partners become our colleagues; we bring family to conferences...

I'm a mom of a 4 months old - just back to work, trying to figure out how he fits in the picture (or, to be more precise, how my work fits around him :)

I'd like to hear about your experiences of mixing kids and work and to think together where are we heading:

  • Do you mix kids and work or do you keep those two worlds apart?
  • If you do, then what and how? Does it work?
  • What does it change? For you? For your work? For your kids?
  • Is it good or bad?
  • What do we need to have a healthy work-kids balance? What kinds of employers? Partners? Kids? Working conditions? Homes? Technology? Mindset?

I guess I'll be posting more on my own experiences and thoughts so far, but I'd love to hear any stories you might have.
