Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316219509, Hardcover)Businessmen with kids often feel trapped between rising expectations at work and at home. Although business demands seem to increase every day, fathers are now expected - and want - to be involved parents. But there are never enough hours in the day. What's a business dad to do? Tom Hirschfeld, veteran businessman and father of two, addresses the dilemma with surprising insights and sensible solutions. He shows that many of the skills and abilities required to succeed in today's economy - such as motivation, team building, empathy, negotiation, and planning - can be applied just as successfully to parenting. Businessmen who leave their corporate skills at the office each evening may actually be handicapping themselves in the struggle to be more effective fathers. Work and parenting don't have to be separate, competing efforts, but can help and enrich each other. Hirschfeld is a business dad writing for business dads. With common sense and a humorous touch, Business Dad applies proven business concepts to the challenges every father faces, such as communication, discipline, instilling moral values, sibling rivalry, and teamwork with Mom. It also tackles them toughest daily problems of the business dad, including work-family conflict, frequent travel, and time management. As a major bonus, finally, it shows how the committed dad can win at work, turning his fathering experience into a huge competitive advantage. Fathering is the most important job a businessman can undertake, and Business Dad is the perfect job manual - filled with lessons from business history, tips from successful executives, and practical wisdom that could come only from real-life experience."
