The Road to Balance

Long, windy road in mountains.

Feeling overwhelmed and overextended has become a very common feeling among employees who are striving for balance in their lives. There is no question that the demands of work and family often conflict. As well, it is difficult to care for yourself when trying to meet the needs of family and co-workers.

In this seminar, you will learn:

  • To look at ways to balance the pressures, expectations, and desires in your life by identifying priorities.
  • You will explore how achieving and maintaining balance can improve the quality of your life.
  • Strategies for dealing with work and personal stress
