How to control your Work-life Balance

Press release April 9, 2013 Education

Work-life Balance and Self-management are concepts, which increasingly have affected the agenda in recent years. In most companies, it is no longer desirable that the employees display a traditional employee culture. This observation is consistent with the fact that the knowledge-based society profits of the employees’ individual competencies and considers them as more than just resources.

When individuals address their work with a different attitude than earlier, and the boundaries between working life and private life merges, it results in several challenges. The most significant challenge for the individual is to balance the two different ‘lives’ in a satisfying manner.

In recent years, a discussion on unlimited work and the ‘complete individual’ at the work-place has accelerated. Unlimited work is related to the mutual effects between working life and private life. It is important to profit from the experiences made outside of work, and apply them at work in a suitable manner. Furthermore, the capability to put down limits in relation to work is important for the individual’s welfare. See our YouTube Video Youtube: here.

The basic assumption behind the latter is that good, well-functioned and effective employees in the modern working life are ‘complete humans’, who are capable of investing themselves in their work, without letting the work identify them as humans. With an increased focus on change readiness and know-how, personal competencies are essential in relation to e.g. the ability to make estimates, show empathy etc. Thus, it is not sufficient only bringing the mind to work. It is also important to bring the heart, which requires a great deal of work-place commitment.

It is every manager and leader's responsibility to guide and help the employees achieving this. Helping your employees out creates value to the organisation and you receive respect as a reward. If you want the tools and skills it requires to help your employees out, you can receive it through a Mini MBA education. See more here or follow the global Facebook network here
