Aug 18 For LFAA Only - Work-Life Balance Workshop

The LFAA is presenting a workshop
 Work-Life Balance
For Leadership Alumni Only

August 18th- 8:30-10:30a.m.
Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce

Presented by: 
Mary Roome,Cox Communications Recruiter 

 

The world of work has been changing dramatically, placing increasing workplace demands on parents and families.   Despite this, if you ask most working professionals they don’t feel they have a good balance in their work and family lives.  Many state that they feel stressed, burned out, and don’t enjoy life enough.

Given the challenges people face in balancing the various demands of work, family, personal life, personal health and mental well-being, how can we better manage these competing demands on our time and attention?

In this workshop we’ll explore:
Work-Life Balance – What Does it Mean?
Balancing Work/Family/Self – Making it Personal

Strategies for Reducing Stress and Building Positive Energy

Thank you to our sponsor, Cox Business
