If only we were all blessed with the skills that our super moms have then we believe the world would be a much better place for us, irrespective of the gender. Whether it is acknowledged or not but the truth is that moms make elite employees who always exceed expectations when dealing with their line of work. You don’t actually agree with us? Then brace yourself and go through some of the characteristics they possess that make them overly qualified for pretty much any job you can throw at her.
Crisis Intervention: Level Expert
Moms are in a constant state of chaos management. When you’re a mom, honing the negotiation and intervention skills are an absolute must. You can’t just ignore a screaming toddler who wanted the Mickey Mouse cup instead of the Paw Patrol one (though you may want to) or you’ll wind up with a tantrum of epic proportions. Moms know they must dig in and deal with issues front and centre and never back down until it’s resolved – they have little time for BS and prefer to tackle things head-on. The same concept is applied in their careers. Got a whining, insecure project manager who feels slighted? She’ll have him in check and be playing nicely with the others in no time.
They Are Multitasking Masterminds
Let’s face it, most males are terrible at multitasking and are far off in the pursuit of having the skill to do so. Being surrounded by work that requires you to be answering emails while on the phone is a walk in the park for someone who’s used to being hands on into naturing toddlers while being on the stove cooking and doing the laundry (and also drawing the bath for bedtime, loading the dishwasher, supervising homework sessions and getting bags ready for the next day’s lunch as she chats with her sister on the phone). Moms are the world’s best multitaskers who bring the highest level of productivity along with them. Rock. Stars.
They Laugh in the Face of Chaos
Another factor that we can agree with which is key is the fact that moms operate well under pressure. While most of us can be left frustrated and eventually crumble, moms, on the other hand take the pressure with open arms and soak it in. People who thrive in chaotic environments equate to employees who meet and exceed deadlines and make the office operate like a well-oiled machine. Moms spend their days negotiating tantrums and disagreements while figuring out how to keep the peace and still get things done. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure that’s one heck of a valuable asset for any employer to have on hand.
They Are Experts at Dealing with Multiple Personalities
We all know that moms are heavyweight experts in tackling and adapting to almost different characters and pretty much every personality you can think of. Like when and if your office is loaded with divas and self-centred people , you know that moms confidently has your back. Think about it; co-workers and kids have a lot in common. The complaining, whining, inability to share, pouting, name-calling and face-making – are we talking about the kids or the employees? Hard to tell, isn’t it? Who better to deal with such an environment than someone who does it day in and day out?
