2024 Women in Leadership Series

Making Work-Life Balance a Reality

Let’s be truthful—something is always out of balance—it is difficult, albeit impossible, to have both life and work balanced. But many of the most successful female leaders have found a way to manage a demanding career while prioritizing their family and personal well-being. You have work, and you have life – you shouldn’t sacrifice one for the other.

This session will help you find the equilibrium and develop a mindset to handle the persistent pull to meet everyone else’s needs.

Develop a mindset to handle the persistent pull to meet everyone else’s needs.

Embracing the WHY to Create Balance in Your Life’s Work

Featuring Rachel Salzberg

  • Do you feel a sense of overwhelm or burnout and desire to create more of an integrated balance into your life and work?
  • Do you distract yourself by justifying “doing” productive activity, versus slowing down to reflect on how you truly feel and what is important?
  • Do you beat yourself up because you have developed unhealthy habits that you know aren’t good for you, and desire to create more wellness in your life?

When we focus on an all-or-nothing approach, we can find ourselves “stuck” with a sense of overwhelm or anxiety. We move fast and furious to a high level of productivity, without achieving what we truly desire. Sometimes, we create lists of what we “need” to do, and the lists become so long that we can’t realistically accomplish them with our daily rhythm, which leaves us feeling resentful and drained. Sound familiar?

What are the habits and mindset that pave the way for sustainable and inspirational accomplishment? Your WHY empowers you to make choices that resonate deeply with you, establish healthy boundaries, and harmonize your personal and professional life. This session will help you transform your approach to daily tasks and long-term goals, infusing them with purpose, joy, and balance. Learn how to create incremental “micro-steps” of daily rituals that become a habit in how we integrate and move through life so we feel more balanced – and in turn create the building blocks for success. Learn how to regain your center and ReSoul yourself through simple tools and practices that will create more of an integrated balance into your life and career. 

12:50 – 1:30 pm
