Make Maternity Leave a Leadership Opportunity

Bring Order to the Chaos with a Maternity Leave Plan

with Robyn Stein DeLuca

Robyn DeLuca

Many women worry about leaving their team in a lurch, and losing control of existing projects when they go out on maternity leave. In this webinar expecting mothers will strategize an exit that anticipates their needs and those of their organization. You will learn to create a master plan with management that removes the confusion and disorganization a maternity leave can bring. Expecting mothers will address practical considerations by:

  • Establishing leave and return dates considering company, state and FMLA policies
  • Illustrate your worth by providing a review of current projects and their status
  • Making recommendations for coverage of your responsibilities
  • Developing an early delivery contingency plan
  • Creating a re-entry plan that helps ease the return-to-work transition and makes sure nobody misses a beat
  • Scheduling a pre-return meeting so you can return hitting the ground running
