How motherhood enhances your personal skills and boosts your professionalism - Part I

Professional Break? That's how many women describe their time dedicated to motherhood and raising children. But if you've been following us for a while, you'll know that we don't consider it a break, but rather a period of work.

And not only that. During this time, women develop and improve many skills that not only enrich our personal and family life, but also have a significant impact on our professional development. We have classified them into three groups: personal, social, and professional.

Today we want to start talking to you about personal skills. They refer to those that help us know ourselves better as individuals, to identify our strengths and weaknesses, and to develop a more conscious, fulfilling, and happy life. Ultimately, it's about the ability to relate to ourselves in a positive and constructive way.

In this first article, we explore in detail five personal skills that we ourselves have experienced, analyzing how these skills develop in the family context and how they can be transferred and effectively applied in the workplace.

Let's get started!


It is the ability to understand oneself, including strengths, weaknesses, values, and motivations. During parenthood, mothers face situations that lead them to reflect on their own beliefs and emotions, promoting greater self-awareness. In the workplace, this skill is fundamental for identifying areas for improvement, setting realistic goals, and making decisions aligned with personal and professional values.


It is the ability to regulate one's emotions, impulses, and behaviors in challenging situations. During parenthood, it is necessary to stay calm and control emotional reactions to properly manage conflicts with little ones. In the workplace, this skill is essential to maintain professionalism, resolve conflicts constructively, and make rational decisions under pressure.


It is the ability to establish and follow routines and rules to achieve specific goals. In parenting, discipline is reflected in time management, setting boundaries, and teaching values and responsibilities to children. In the workplace, this skill is fundamental to meet deadlines, achieve objectives, and maintain consistency in job performance.


It is the ability to adapt and adjust to different circumstances and changes. Mothers must be flexible in their approach and parenting strategies to meet the changing needs of their children. In the workplace, flexibility allows one to face new situations, solve problems creatively, and collaborate effectively with others.

Emotional Management:

It is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage one's own emotions in a healthy and constructive way. And parenting, as you may have already experienced, involves dealing with a wide range of emotions. In the workplace, emotional management is key to maintaining positive interpersonal relationships, managing stress, and promoting a healthy work environment.
