The Work-Life Balancing Act

Developing Resilience, Rejuvenation and Self-Renewal

The balancing act of Life requires that we attend to many responsibilities at work, with family and friends -- often, we find ourselves caring, yet neglecting good care for self. We may teach others to overcome adversity, see the bigger picture, adapt to change, make self-care a priority, become more mindful, practice balance, thrive rather than exist . . . but how well do we REALLY do that for ourselves?

Resilience, the ability to bounce back or adapt, is often a trait attributed to personality, temperament or genetics— but it can also be developed and fostered. Rejuvenation allows us to invigorate ourselves, or "Sharpen the Saw," which Stephen Covey highlights as the 7th habit. Our resilience may aid us in attending to others, but it is the practice of rejuvenation that refreshes us most. Daily investment in yourself enhances your ability to tend to others’ needs over the long term. Amazingly, it takes very little time. The small, simple and intentional changes you make will have lasting results.

As a result of this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn to understand and evaluate their own level of Resilience
  • Examine areas for Self-Renewal
  • Identify target areas to enhance Rejuvenation, both personally and professionally
