#75: Forget Balance: How to Achieve Work-Life Integration

Work Life Balance is a term that has been historically used referring to a healthy balance between personal and professional life.  While many have strived to achieve this, and corporate leaders have attempted to make changes to their structure to support that concept, it remained elusive.  Today it is often termed the double win, where you can succeed at work and in life. It marks a tipping point where many have realized that balance is not what we should be seeking, but instead integration of the two. 

 In today’s shorty episode of “Finding the Upside,” I am diving into the concept of work life integration. Departing from the traditional notion of work-life balance, I explore how integrating work and personal life can lead to greater satisfaction, lower stress levels, and overall well-being whether you are an entrepreneur or work in a company. I highlight how this approach yields benefits for both groups. Highlighting studies and research findings, I talk about ways to use this approach with examples of how others have achieved positive results and why companies who migrate to support this will see improvements as well.  Tune in now to get the insights I’m sharing to help you achieve a more fulfilling and sustainable approach to work and life.
