  7. 7. “ Do as I say not as I did.” <ul><li>For 41 years, my operating principle was; </li></ul><ul><ul><li>work hard, play hard and spend some time as a father. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>I felt my life was perfectly balanced.

  8. 8. Work – activities done regularly for money
  9. 9. Life – everything else
  10. 10. So what is work-life balance? <ul><li>Work-life balance is a swap – a deal you’ve made with yourself about what you keep and what you give up. </li></ul><ul><li>Work-life balance was coined to address the unhealthy life choices that many people were making; they were choosing to neglect other important areas of their lives such as family, friends, and hobbies in favor of work-related chores and goals </li></ul>
  11. 11. How is your work-life balance?
  12. 12. <ul><li>But looking back, it is clear that the balance I chose had consequences for the people around me at home and at the office. For instance, my kids were raised , largely alone, by their mother, Carolyn. </li></ul><ul><li>My defense, if there is one, is that those were the times. Fathers were different then. In general, it was assumed that wives stayed at home to make everything run smoothly. </li></ul><ul><li>Jack Welch, “Winning” </li></ul>“ It’s not that bosses want you to give up your family or your hobbies.”

  15. 15. Studies show that Businesses benefit from a focus on more-balanced employees. Well-rested employees are more successful. Time off increases positive mood, and a sense of initiative and competence. The more leisure activities a person is involved in, the higher their life satisfaction. Work/Life Balance = More Productive Workforce
  16. 16. <ul><li>Studies show that taking time off from work can reduce the risk of heart attack by 32% in men and 50% in women. </li></ul><ul><li>Taking a break from work of any kind: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improves Worker Performance </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improves Creativity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Increases Innovation </li></ul></ul></ul>All Things That Employers Want!
  17. 17. Juggling activities “ Many people don’t take vacations often enough. In fact, many people never take them due to financial constraints or job insecurity! And now with increasing frequency, when we do take vacations, we often bring work along with us, keeping ourselves essentially still in the work mindset we’re trying to escape. This is unfortunate because of the importance of vacations for stress relief, productivity, and health.” - About.com Health's Disease and Condition content is reviewed by the Medical Review Board
  18. 18. “ The burned-out employee will utilize medical services, experience increased sick time and have lower productivity, all costing the employer money.” Source: Health Enhancement Research Organization, Birmingham, AL

  23. 23. Achieving work-life balance is a process <ul><li>Getting it right is an iterative process. </li></ul><ul><li>You get better at it with experience and observation and eventually you will find it is not really hard. </li></ul><ul><li>It is just what and how you do things. </li></ul><ul><li>DO----LEARN----DO </li></ul>
