Talk: Leading the Life You Want

Have you ever wondered if "work/life balance" exists? How do some of the world's most successful professionals find harmony in work and with the rest of "life"? Join us for an enlightening conversation with Dr. Stew Friedman as he discusses his most recent book, Leading the Life You Want. According to Friedman, the idea that “work” competes with “life” ignores the more nuanced reality of our humanity—the intersection and interaction of four central domains: work, home, community, and the private self. The goal is to integrate these areas harmoniously instead of thinking only in terms of trade-offs. It can be done.
