Vancouver Island Chapter Mentorship Wrap-Up Event
By choice or out of necessity, the manner in which many workers make a living is undergoing a fundamental change. And to make a living is to accept that there is a congenital bond between work and life, between what people do and how they live. The problem? Work-life balance is not the answer. The rising rate of employee burnout is a sign. In this talk, Dan Pontefract provides an assessment of the current state of work and life, offering an alternative to work-life balance. We must create the conditions for people to bloom in both work and life, not balance. After all, we bring our work into our lives and our lives into our work; an improved work-life model is vital. Dan will introduce a new and improved work-life leadership philosophy. It’s time for leaders to understand what it means to adopt a Work-Life Bloom mindset. Yes, people at all levels of the organization need to bloom not balance. Find out how it's done.
