Remember when you could do everything you wanted to do while doing everything you needed to do? Neither does anyone else. Gone are the simpler days when work was a 40-hour-per-week idea, there weren't distractions, you weren't reachable 24x7, and you didn't have more to do than the time available. It is possible to have a work-life balance in today's complicated, competitive, and ever-changing world if you understand what is and isn't.

In this highly interactive and reflective workshop, you will learn:

  • the history of work-life balance and why most people don't seem to have it
  • how time, priorities, and other people impact balance
  • how to shift your mindset to a more holistic way of thinking
  • tactics and strategies to deal with difficulties and stresses of being more balanced
  • the benefits that balance can bring to your team and your company

As Oprah said, "I've learned that you can't have everything and do everything at the same time," but you can put yourself higher on your own 'to do' list.
