The Art of Untethering: How Is Your Work/Life Balance?

We’ve all had those times when work and life cross paths. It can come in the form of a late night email or a phone call while out at dinner. How do we turn off the “Open” sign in order to maintain a quality balance of work and life? How do we keep the lines from blurring between work and life? These are questions that we all have or will face at some point.

In this talk, we will discuss what work/life balance is; how to see the warning signs that the paths are crossing; and how to maintain the balance so that both work and life are enjoyable and fulfilling.
