WEBINAR: Work-Life Balance for Jewish Professionals and Leaders presents: 2015 Virtual Presentations | Learn Without Leaving Your Desk

Work-Life Balance for Jewish Professionals and Leaders

If you don’t want to burn out, stop living like you’re on fire.

—Brené Brown

There was a time when work stayed at work and home stayed at home, and it was a rare occurrence when the two of them would meet. Today, they don’t just meet—they col­lide! The boundaries between when and where we do our work and when and where we get involved in “life”—family, friends, activities, etc.—is blurry for most of us. On one hand, it can make things convenient. On the other hand, these blurred lines rarely give us the opportunity to turn ourselves “off.” Whether you observe the Sabbath and are “only” available “24/6,” or you observe some other time or way to power down, this session will give you concrete strategies to avoid burnout.

Speaker: Deborah Grayson Riegel
