5 Steps to Better Work-Life Balance – For Leader’s

Reaping work-life benefits for yourself, your organization and your team

This upbeat keynote for leaders delivers an understanding of the key bottom line impact of Work-Life Balance on the organization and on the manager’s effectiveness as a leader. Concrete examples and personal applications show how to incorporate work-life balance methods into the leader’s existing style to immediately impact their own work and life, as well as that of their team’s.

People today are exposed to over 100 times as many personal and professional choices as compared with ten years ago. This explosion of choices is unprecedented in human history, suggesting that today’s managers and employees require not only a different skill set, but also a different mind set than even a decade ago. As a result, the demand for work-life balance solutions is expanding at an unprecedented rate; and, over the next decade, will be one of the most important issues that executives and human resource professionals are expected to manage.

While traditional efforts such as employee benefits and organizational policies are beneficial, research shows that personal accountability combined with an improved skill set are the key to a better work-life balance. In this session, Jim will reveal the two essentials required for a successful work-life strategy and how leaders can most quickly and effectively implement them. Leaders are impacted with personal takeaways that benefit them individually, driving their commitment to positively follow through with their teams.

5 Steps to Better Work-Life Balance

More Value and Balance from Your Work & Life, Everyday!

This meaningful and upbeat keynote delivers specific tools and tips that are unmatched in the results they will produce for your audience. Important on and off the job insights produce immediate “Ah-Hah’s” as well as ongoing results for both the individual and your organization. With a highly interactive style Jim engages the audience with easy-to-use Work-Life Balance tools to better manage both the people and things that are important to their work and life success. The outcome for the individual is more control, value and balance both professionally and personally. The outcome for the organization is higher performance from more skilled, accountable and committed employees and managers.

The delivery includes defining Work-Life Balance: what it means, what it doesn’t mean; accepting responsibility for your own work and life results; specific tools to Achieve and Enjoy more everyday; why understanding the critical difference between a meeting and a date will multiply the value of each; and how to master the choice challenge to create more value and balance in your life on an every day basis. Personal and work anecdotes, examples and applications engage the audience to produce immediate as well as ongoing results. Your attendees will be talking about and benefiting from this session for years to come.

The Choice Challenge

Advanced Time Management for Your Work and Life

This keynote inspires audience members to take a more positive and productive approach to creating more value from their time on and off the job. Effective time management has become increasingly more important with the explosion of on and off the job choices and corresponding rise in stress levels. A recent survey shows that the average worker admits to “frittering away” more than 2.09 hours a day, not counting lunch, on personal business, costing companies an estimated $759 billion annually.

Jim illustrates how each of us can manage and drive performance through more effective decision making, interpersonal interactions and project execution. Quick and easy advanced time management tools are discovered and applied. Participants leave with skills for making the most of the moment as well as for prioritizing a multitude of complex ongoing demands. Attendees discover concrete ways that they can immediately improve the timeliness and clarity of communications, project workflow and decision making processes, while simultaneously reducing unproductive stress levels. Relevant personal and professional examples, applications and results are produced making the session truly engaging and motivational for the entire audience.
