Having worked with numerous teams across various sectors, one common challenge that employees seem to face is finding work-life balance.
So what is this “work-life balance” and how do we tackle this issue in our highly competitive world? To understand the nuances of this issue, I talked to numerous employees and their families to understand the real problem. One common thread that came to light is time, in fact, the quality time that one spends! Imagine spending a couple of hours with your girl-friend, wife, children, friends, or even with your own self-engaging in things you love doing, of which 80% of the time is spent on your phone. Now imagine spending the same amount of time engaging in some activity or conversation without your phone. That’s the difference between spending time versus spending quality time.
Below is a 4-step process to enhance work-life balance.
*Refer to Habit 3 from Steven R. Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Following these steps will not only enhance bonding with your stakeholders but also yield a sense of achievement, invariably creating work-life balance.
