Praise for Scott Behson...

  • “Scott was great to work with and provided a very powerful and relevant presentation to our employees. Scott was able to quickly and enthusiastically hone in on many important key themes in his overview that were on point for the goals of the session and the culture of our organization. He had really good chemistry with the other panelists. The session seemed very natural, we received great feedback and, overall, it exceeded expectations.”



  • “Scott Behson not only clearly shows the conflicts faced by many working dads, but he also provides actionable advice that will help dads find better solutions at work and at home. The stories, exercises, and concrete tips Scott offers in The Working Dad’s Survival Guide bring clarity, focus, and motivation for readers to tackle these issues in their own lives.”

    –Sarah Sutton Fell, CEO, Flexjobs


  • “In this smart, charming, and actionable guide, Scott Behson offers a practical toolkit for thriving in both domains. You'll discover how to make family time more memorable, how to negotiate more flexibility with your boss, and why you should pack at least one stuffed animal on every business trip. Behson is the rare writer who can communicate everything you need to know, while making you feel like you're just chatting over a beer with a good friend at a barbeque.”

    –Ron Friedman, author, The Best Place to Work


  • “A sincere ‘thank you’ for giving such a dynamic presentation at our Family Business Forum! Your insights and research on working families, and how we can support working parents, brought tremendous value to our members. I know they really appreciated it”

    –Gabrielle Zuccaroa, Programming manager
    O.Berk Family Business Forum at Fairleigh Dickinson University

① BUILDING A FAMILY-FORWARD WORKPLACE | ② THE WORKING DAD'S SURVIVAL GUIDE

① Building a Family-Forward Workplace


One of the most important challenges employers face today is managing in a way that encourages both high performance and the sustainable long-term well-being of their employees. Whether you are a top executive, an HR professional, a small business owner, or a front line supervisor, you’ve seen how work-family challenges are playing out for your employees. Many are struggling with work-life balance, sapping their energy, motivation and loyalty. There has to be a better way. There is! I’ll help you think through these important issues, give examples of employers who have risen to the challenge, and work with you to develop solutions that work for your workplace. You’ll leave with a renewed commitment to valuing employees as whole people and helping them lead successful lives both at work and at home.

② The Working Dad’s Survival Guide


Most fathers today strive both to be successful in their careers and to be loving, involved dads. It sometimes seems like an impossible tug-of-war. But it doesn't have to be. Dr. Behson helps dads understand they are not alone, and offers a series of concrete time and life management strategies that enable them to succeed in their careers while also being the present, involved fathers they always wanted to be. Through personal stories and interviews with dozens of working dads, as well as actionable advice and useful self-assessment exercises, Scott Behson will help you feel more confident in succeeding in both parts of your life.
