The problem with "work-life balance" is that it is misnamed. There is no such thing. Most of us think work-life balance means taking from one to give to the other. Nothing could be further from the truth. As long as you think of work-life as opposites, you'll NEVER GET the "work" or the "life" you want.
This session is for those who see themselves as successful. It is for the high performers, people who like their career, and want to do well at work. They just have one tiny problem: they don't want to sacrifice their life to get there. Come and see how this is possible. Learn specific techniques you can use – in ANY situation – to guarantee success in both "work" and "life". See specific data – from studies with IBMers – that show HIGHER performance combined with more time at home. Finally, learn how IBM is planning to leverage these new techniques to make them available worldwide.
