Parents Make Better Managers

Citing research from Clark University and the Center for Creative Leadership, a story in Forbes [1] made the case that parent who are invested and spend time with their families perform better in the office than non-parents. "In parenting roles you get a chance to do a lot of the same things you do as a manager," one of the study authors, Marian N. Ruderman said. "You get to hone your interpersonal skills. You learn how to develop other people. It's another opportunity to learn from experience."
