MANAGING COMPETING DEMANDS: GETTING IT DONE AND HAVING A LIFE

 
Managers today run a gauntlet of competing demands, both personal and professional. Finding the right balance between work and life isn't easy, but doing so is essential to good health and energy, reduced stress, improved productivity at work and personal happiness. Most people feel so overloaded that they don't know where to start in addressing this balance issue. Dr. David Posen will simplify the process by leading you on a four-part voyage of self-discovery that will bring structure to your quest, and help you discover a multitude of tips for working more effectively, making time for leisure and taking more control of your life. The objectives of this dynamic, interactive session are to help participants: (1) develop a clear picture of the Work-Life Balance they would like to achieve; (2) identify obstacles that stand in the way of achieving their desired balance; (3) develop a repertoire of action strategies and tools for overcoming current obstacles and any that may arise in the future; and (4) develop their own personal action plan which is concrete, practical and achievable.
