"After the birth of her second child, marketing and advertising executive Lisen Stromberg did something she never imagined she would do: she opted out and chose to stay home with her children. But her career didn't end there. Stromberg paused, then pivoted to become an award-winning journalist writing about women, work, and life in Silicon Valley. Along the way, she met many highly successful women who told her they never "opted out" but had, in fact, temporarily paused or downshifted their careers. Their journeys revealed an alternative, non-linear path to the top that enabled them to reconcile family with their careers. In Work Pause Thrive: How to Pause for Parenthood Without Killing Your Career, Stromberg details how these trailblazers disrupted the original paradigm by incorporating pauses into their careers and embracing all aspects of life. Deeply rooted in social science research, cutting-edge data collected from nearly 1,500 women, and through 186 first-person interviews, Stromberg provides a blueprint for stepping back from your career without sacrificing your ambitions. She shows you how to successfully opt not out, but in--not just to your career, but to your whole life."--Publisher's website.… (mer)

Work Pause Thrive is not the type of book that I would normally read, yet I still found it enjoyable. In these pages, author Lisen Stromberg discusses the difficulties professional women have finding a work-life balance not just on a personal level but on a systematic level.

While I'm not sure if Ms. Stromberg identifies as a feminist or even intended for her book to have a feminist tone, it often does. As she picks apart the shortcomings of the American dream and our work-work-work attitude, the author doesn't just illustrate how this works against mothers. Time and again, Ms. Stromberg is able to paint a picture of how our current line of thinking and failures at both the corporate and governmental levels create needless difficulties for fathers, too.

Yet these people, these women are able to forge ahead. Thanks to the Women on the Rise survey, the author had a chance to see how 1,5000 women managed to find that balance, even if it meant pausing their careers. More often than not, Lisen found that those pauses were not career killers. Rather, they allowed women to refocus and, in many cases, discover what they truly wanted to do professionally.

In Work Pause Thrive, the author is firm in her beliefs of services and support we should be providing to mothers (and families), but she is also quick to point out how doing so is in the company's (and country's) best interest, too.

I found her case to be compelling, the similarities between so many respondents to be eye-opening and some of the results to be disappointing. If you're a businesswoman and a mother, you might find Work Pause Thrive to be helpful and reassuring. And if you're a business owner, work in HR or want to establish government policy, you might benefit from reading this book, too.

I received a free copy of Work PAUSE Thrive in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. ( )

I won this in a GOODREADS giveaway. Work Pause Thrive: How to Pause for Parenthood Without Killing Your Career by Lisen Stromberg has well researched information mixed with personal experiences. I really expected it to be dry but it was amazingly motivational. I will be passing this on to a colleague who just announced her pregnancy. ( )
