Difficult Conversations

Pretend you received a voice message this morning on your way to work that went something like this: “Hey, I’m calling to give you a heads-up about a huge conflict in your department today.

BYLAWS BALANCING YOUR LIFE AND WORK STORY

Work-life balance summit exclusive to six dual career couples

For dual-career couples that strive to have both gratifying careers and a fulfilling personal/family life, striking a balance can be exhausting—especially when ever-increasing job demands coincide with major life events, such as marrying, home ownership, and having children.
Unfortunately, millennials weren’t taught work-life balance in high school, college, or graduate school. And their Baby Boomer parents—who had little control over how and when they worked; many of whom waited until retirement to really live life—didn’t provide that role model.
I understand. And, that’s exactly why I created what may be the first and only workshop of its kind: BYLAWS.
BYLAWS is built upon a critical lesson they don’t teach you in MBA or PhD programs, or at leadership workshops: your greatest ally in life isn’t your boss, your mentor or the CEO—it’s your partner.
A healthy marriage supports an equally robust and prosperous work community. A positive and supportive partner can make your work more inspiring and purposeful. Homes and offices are integrated systems. When work-life pressures are in imbalance, both systems suffer. Conflict resolution in one system will benefit the other as well.
When you’re happier at home, you’re more productive at work. Everyone wins: you, your spouse, your children, your employer, your colleagues, and your customers.
