Fabienne was a 5th year European associate in M&A.
After traveling home for her mother’s birthday she was chastised for leaving during a deal.
She thought the junior partner had it under control, but word was she left them in the lurch.
This and feeling pigeonholed, the hours as women lawyers and double standards for women, made her seriously consider leaving.
She no longer wanted to be expected to cancel vacations “if need be“…
Especially with no control over who gets to define “need be“.
She made her decision. She wanted out.
I led her through some exercises…
She got very specific about what she wanted.
We met up on a sunny day and sat outside the cafe.
She told me she wanted to work for a start-up…
With an unlimited vacation policy.
I got chills all over my body.
Guess what? I swear to you within four months… she got it…
She is now in house counsel at a start-up that offers unlimited vacation days!
