Combining having kids with work

A question that clients raise in coaching sessions is how about how they would cope with a busy career and raising a family.  As I have mentioned elsewhere in the blog, women without kids can see how their colleagues who are mothers struggle to maintain a work/life balance.

I found this interesting article where senior women leaders in the tech industry talk about how they have developed new ways to overcome this age old problem for women.  One of the interesting points that one of the women raised was about how they noticed how women talked themselves out of a career before even having children, assuming that they couldn't have both.  I also see it the other way around - where women will talk themselves out of having children assuming they can't have children and their career.
