The other day working with one of my clients, she brought up a subject that has started to give her some stress, how to prepare for her maternity leave. She had already identified three key issues: Internal administration, Internal partner relationships, and f course how to proceed with her clients.

She already knew she needed a plan, so that is where we began. By the time she has to announce to her partners, she will have had everything well thought out, identified where they may have issues and be able to answer to them, and have a detailed approach to client development and management while she is away.

If you are in this situation, or thinking you may be, do you have a plan?
