In partnership with Tatarklubben, AmCham invited members yet another educational webinar. This time it was with the Harvard Business Review author and INSEAD Associate Professor Jennifer Petriglier who explored the topic How Dual-Career Couples Can Find Fulfillment in Love and Work. Watch the livestream video here.
Most advice for two-career couples frames solutions in a language of sacrifice and trade-offs. In this workshop INSEAD professor Jennifer Petriglieri shows how couples can tackle challenges throughout their lives—together.
In this interactive workshop, she gave the tools to progress through three key phases:
- How can we make this work? This initial phase focuses on the logistics of combining two busy lives and often demands of children.
- What do we really want? In this phase, couples learn to navigate midlife crises in ways that allow each partner to feel happyand fulfilled.
- Who are we now? With careers winding down and kids grown up, this last phase deals with new freedoms—and uncertainties.
Couples That Work includes exercises and activities designed to help couples develop their own answers to the question: How can we successfully combine love and work?
Jennifer Petriglieri is an award-winning researcher and Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD where she directs the Exec Education Management Acceleration Programme.
