Webinar: Work-Life Balance And What To Do About It

In this interactive webinar, we will be examining why achieving work-life balance is so challenging, and what leaders can do to address it – both in terms of leading others and leading ourselves. We will demonstrate how a change in attitude among all parties involved can reduce the ever-elusive work-life balance to a lesser, if not a non-issue. Please join us for a journey into the 53rd week and come prepared for some very light physical exercise that requires just a tiny bit of space.
