Balancing Work and Life

How to Balance Your Passion and Commitment
Toward Your Nonprofit Work with Your
Desire to Live a Holistic, Fulfilling Life

When you are nearing the last days of your life, do you want to look back and see a career, or do you want to see a life? Why is it that you can schedule time for work meetings, but it is so difficult for you to schedule time for the people who really matter to you in your life?

In this session, CSL will examine the most common causes of burnout among nonprofit leaders and managers and then share some time-tested strategies for how you can sustain your passion and motivation in your work while also developing healthy, meaningful relationships with your family, friends, partner and self.

You will learn how to reduce the stress and pressure in your life. This session will blend psychology, philosophy, spirituality, personal development, organizational development and leadership into accessible, transformational strategies that enable you to balance ambition with appreciation. You will leave this session with concrete, personalized strategies to take care of others while also taking care of yourself and the people you love.
