Just right. Go Firm.

What’s wrong-headed though is this line of debate in the article:
Work and family experts often tout moms as “great managers,” but skills developed while managing a household don’t necessarily translate to the office, Harvard Business School professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter said in a recent essay. “Family managers are accustomed to being surrounded mostly by people who are…clearly dependent, unable to function fully on their own,” Ms. Kanter wrote. “Spending quality time with people with limited vocabularies doesn’t hone complex strategic thinking.”

Their brains are the same assets as when they left, ready to be leveraged with vigor, efficiency, and renewed creativity. It’s their HEARTS that have grown, and this is significant.

Empathy is their hidden strength, capable of inspiring courage and innovation more broadly, if the culture is fit to nourish it.
