Leadership Tips: Perhaps We Don't Need Work/Life Balance

work/life balance

In business there is a lot of talk around work/life balance. To me, this topic is always too broad. I think for many, life is more fluid than that. In a world of constant connection, many of us work when we could be playing and play when we could be working.

However, if your organization and your employees came to work each day as excited as they are to leave on Friday - what results could be achieved?

This week ask yourself: What does work/life balance really look like for you?
