How One Employer Understood A Lead Dad

Interview with Colin Haupt / Widowed Lead Dad Of Three

Hosted by Paul Sullivan

Colin Haupt was always a Lead Dad. When his children were young and he was a rising HR executive, he was the one to leave work when his kids needed him. His wife’s job in financial services didn’t have that flexibity. It continued when he joined a start-up insurance company that was growing quickly but had a CEO who put family first. Five years ago, Colin’s wife died from breast cancer and the company’s support allowed him to focus on their kids. Listen to his story of being two different types of Lead Dad and how working for a company with strong care policies made a difference.
