Work-Life Balance

  • Take This Job and Love ItThe world of work has become more challenging. With more work, fewer people, tighter budgets, and less time, such things as morale, energy, and attitude often take a hit. Negativity increases. Comments such as, “It won’t work here … We’ve always done it this way… and …That’s not my job” become more familiar.

    Indeed, work-life balance may seem more like a never-gonna-happen fantasy than an ever-present reality.

    The good news is you can create a positive workplace that is less stressful and more exciting … where satisfaction and fulfillment are the rule, not the exception. You can create a lifestyle that is relatively free of stress.

    You don’t have to feel stuck, helpless, overwhelmed or exhausted … even if your work schedule is highly demanding. And you don’t have to choose between your career and your family IF you apply the simple work-life balance strategies detailed in this program.

    Dr. Alan Zimmerman’s game-changing seminar offers real-world practical help that will energize you, boost your productivity, keep stress at bay, and put you in the driver’s seat of the job and life you’ve always wanted. And just so you know what to expect, you won’t be sitting back, listening to someone rehash what you’ve already heard and know. You’re going to get an interactive learning experience that’s powerful, eye-opening, and entertaining.
