DADS IN BUSINESS

SELF AWARENESS. SUPPORT. REAL TALK.

A supportive network to help busy dads manage themselves, their family and their business. Better.

WHO

Rob Taylor, Dad of three and award winning business owner working alongside Angga Kara, executive high performance coach are working together to support busy Dads in the workplace.

WHAT

We work with employers and business owners to support Dads in the workplace. We help busy Dads find the tools to bring the best of themselves to home and to work through a variety of collaborative work.

WHY

Because being a successful Dad is hard and being successful at work is hard too. Because three times more men commit suicide than women. Becuase 83% of Dads feel overwhelmed on a daily basis. Because 90% of Dads feel guilty. 

NETWORK

We are creating spaces for Dads to come together and talk, hold each other accountable and share experiences of Dad. Powerful conversations that give permission to remove the mask and speak openly.
