Deliberations and workshops on work/life balance should not be the focus of women only because the subject is essentially about creating harmony despite the multiple roles, not just isolated to our careers and our families, but in the entire spectrum that make up our lives. Learning to cope and thrive in multiple roles is a key leadership skill for both men and women. The issue, in its bare bones, is about living and about the simplicity or complexity we bring into our lives because of the skills, knowledge and aspirations we have or do not have. The quality of your life is determined by the way you accomplish juggling the roles you hold in your life.
Our values, personal qualities and sense of purpose are evident in the consistency, or lack thereof, in our behaviours (our habits) across all the roles we have. Our consistent behaviours communicate our character. Effective individuals become effective leaders who lead effective teams and effective organisations.
An effective leader is more than just the sum of his or her technical or professional expertise. What makes up an effective leader are the core skills that a person acquires over their lifetime, crossing from role to role, not just limited to their job or career. This entails having and using transferable skills across the breadths and lengths of your lives.
We expend a lot of energy and spend a lot of time, even decades, developing our work talents and we tend to disregard and not apply these acquired skills in all the roles that we occupy in our lives.
Busara Leadership Partners invites both males and females who are management (from junior to executive levels) across all disciplines, business owners, company directors, CEOs, board members and board chairs to spend a couple of gratifying hours learning, reflecting and understanding the invisible barriers that inadvertently undermine their leadership and harmony in the various aspects of their lives. Being a leader is more than a position. It involves a fundamental shift in thoughts, words and deeds. ‘Life Is a Jungle Gym, Not a Balancing Act’ Masterclass will focus on leadership knowledge and capabilities that give individuals the fortitude to unlock their full potential, confidently and competently, and to own all the roles they occupy. Balance - obsessed people do not change the world. Let’s share with you what can and should tip the balance :-)
