Work Life Balance

Rediscover personal values to prioritize activities

So many of us are continue to struggle with the same problem – we’re doing more and more and feeling like we’re OUT of balance! Today’s technology has created an environment of information overload and a nonstop work cycle which often blurs the line between work and home. In this workshop we will explore the critical areas of life and ask participants to conduct a current state assessment.

Participants will also explore their personal values and identify specific 30 day goals that align with those values. We will review the Pareto Principle and use it to separate the “vital few” from the “trivial many” tasks in our daily lives. Rediscover your personal values and identify specific high value activities that you can implement immediately!
