A one-day seminar set for April 17, 2010 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
It is essential for the servant-leader to model and encourage life/work balance. Just as important as being a positive role model, rolling up one's sleeves and getting work done is the complementary dimension of creating a refreshing balance in one's life that honors personal and team values.
People are not machines; longer work hours do not translate into higher productivity. In fact, when people overwork, the result is an increase in errors, less alertness, and diminished judgement, creativity and intuition. A peek inside those companies listed as "100 Best Places to Work in America" reveals clear evidence of teams and individuals who excel in times of need yet manage to avoid slipping into workaholism or chronic burnout. Learning to stay centered and living from a place of balance is the foundation for mutual trust and servant leadership.
