Description

What are the crucial conversations every couple must have for their marriage AND their career to survive?

Dual-career couples are now the rule rather than the exception - in Australia 65 per cent of couples with children both work. 

Jennifer Petriglieri is a professor of organisational behaviour at INSEAD Business School and she shares her research on the crucial transitions couples must navigate to make sure they not just survive but thrive in love AND work. She covers the contract she and her now-husband signed at the start of their relationship, how to have the difficult conversations around career (often is more about a power struggle),

Jennifer's book is Couples That Work.



Thanks to our couple Scott and Laura, our anonymous doctor and Kate Bennett Ericksson for their time and honest insights.
