WLB TRAININGS, KEYNOTES

Work Smarter, Live Better

In a crazy-busy world, it's very easy to get caught up in a work style that makes us act before we think, reacting to devices and others all day. It's an unsustainable pattern that leads to doing more than we can do well, stress, mistakes, burnout, and reduced productivity.

There's a more productive way to work: managing demands, instead of having them manage us. This inspirational and interactive training shows your team how to do that, by using the latest research and best practices to make key adjustments to how they do tasks and respond to stress, time frenzy, and other reflex behaviors.

We equip your team with an array of self-management tools to manage interruptions and email overload, improve time management and prioritization, increase focus, reframe stress, refuel energy, and dramatically upgrade quality of life. 

They get strategies to navigate the work-life divide and activate a fulfilling life outside the office, shown by the research to increase attention and success on the job.

The research shows that work-life balance is an essential engagement tool, building proactive, committed employees. Gallup found that people who have good work-life balance are 21% more productive. 

Give your team the best tools science has to offer, and the performance—and employee survey results—will make you glad you did.

WORK-LIFE BALANCE

Work-life balance pays for these employees 

The Productivity Dividend of Work-Life Balance

A recent survey by the Corporate Executive Board, which represents 80% of the Fortune 500 companies, ranks work-life balance as one of the most important workplace attributes—second only to compensation. They found that employees who feel they have good work-life balance work 21% harder than those who don't.

That's the definition of the extra effort of engagement. It's a powerful dividend for working in a way the research says is more productive, anyway. Studies (see right column) show that work-life balance initiatives dramatically increase revenues, reduce costs, and improve retention.

Our comprehensive work-life program brings all those benefits to your organization. It's one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to keep staff engaged, recharged, and motivated.

Increase Effectiveness, Cut Stress

Full employee engagement slideSo what is work-life balance, anyway? Viable work-life balance requires a concerted effort to address the nature of the work and how it can be done in the most effective way, as well as tools that manage workload and devices, encourage engagement, and help employees navigate the work-life divide. Our training programs bring together all these elements, with comprehensive self-management, time management, stress management, technology management, interruption management, and vitality strategies.

Our programs build full engagement skills and instill the most potent motivation—intrinsic, which fuels competence and achievement.

Actionable Work-Life Tools   

Our work-life programs (see right column) provide practical tools that help teams and individuals work smarter and live better. The focus is on adjusting work style for better health and work-family outcomes. The training provides easy-to-learn strategies to:

Reframe stress
Eliminate burnout
Control email overload
Manage interruptions
Improve time management
Develop prioritization skills
Refuel brains and bodies
Deploy the most potent motivation for engagement
Improve health and wellness
Activate the most fulfilling life

The Engine of Vitality

The "life" piece of work-life often gets overlooked, but it's the engine of productivity and vitality—and the best stress buffer. The brain fatigues well before the body, say researchers. Our chief productivity tool needs recovery strategies during the day and at home to operate at full capacity.  

Our programs help your team recharge with practices the science shows can increase focus and productivity during the workday, and after work, result in reduced fatigue and more positive affect the next morning at the office. We help your team activate the fullest life, helping them unlock the engaging experiences that fuel vitality, optimism, and satisfaction.
