WORK LIFE BALANCE
Despite the worldwide quest for Work-Life Balance, very few have found an acceptable definition of the concept. Here’s a proven method which will positively impact your everyday value and balance starting today.
We must however first understand what work life balance is NOT…
Trying to schedule an equal number of hours for each of your various work and personal activities is usually unrewarding and unrealistic. Life is and should be more fluid than that.
The right balance for you today will probably be different for you tomorrow. The right balance for you when you are single will be different when you marry, or if you have children; when you start a new career versus when you are nearing retirement.
However, at the core of an effective work-life balance there are two key everyday concepts that are relevant to each of us. They are daily Achievement and Enjoyment, ideas almost deceptive in their simplicity.
A critical aspect of being a good professional or leader is to know when to do what. To know – how much of what to do. For example, should you go for you’re a family function or should you attend the lunch organized at office? Some say this knowledge comes with experience.
Why wait for experience to make the decisions for you? When all you need is to ponder over it now, with the assistance of someone who can direct and guide you towards the decision you really are comfortable with. This is what Work-Life Balance coaching is all about. It is about finding the balance in life. It is about knowing prioritization so that you live a guilt-free and yet, responsible life and successful life in very aspect.
Some of the aspects that the Work-Life Balance coaching deals with are:
- Improve time management skills
- Define boundaries in your work as well as personal life
- Manage work so as to not get overwhelmed by it
- Develop techniques to manage stress and anxiety
- Understand the benefits of support systems
Once you are set on the path of “balance”, it is easy to figure out if you should attend that family function or business lunch, or better still give a little time to both. A lot many of our clients if not all, who have undergone this coaching value what they have and are amazed at how they can “manage it all”.
