Snippet of the day

With reference to the video shown, what would you suggest to the lead actress – to resign from her job?

Such high flying corporate jobs typically do not have work-life balance as a possible option. How is it possible to hold such a job and still be able to find work-life balance?

 

There’s no need to resign from her job. She can consider scaling down for a period, meaning take on less responsibilities.  This is likely to come with adjustments in compensation and lifestyle will be affected. For instance, instead of long, big holidays all the time, take less expensive holidays. She can also still continue with full-time work but discuss the possibility of flexible work arrangement and opt for an arrangement which is a win-win for both her and her company.  Maintaining work-life harmony takes conscious effort in managing priorities and time, as well as saying “no” to demands that interfere with family life. Also, there are companies that value talent and implement work-life strategies to attract and retain talent. Such companies are more sensitive to staff’s work-life needs and are willing to consider solutions to retain valued staff rather than lose them due to work-life conflict.
