Let’s be truthful—something is always out of balance—it is difficult, albeit impossible, to have both life and work balanced. But many of the most successful female leaders have found a way to manage a demanding career while prioritizing their family and personal well-being. You have work, and you have life – you shouldn’t sacrifice one for the other. This session will help you find the equilibrium and develop a mindset to handle the persistent pull to meet everyone else’s needs.
Former Commander of the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, Air Force
Author, The No Club and Women Don’t Ask: Negotiation and the Gender Divide
All times Eastern
Gen. Lori Robinson’s selection as Commander of NORAD and NORTHCOM made national news as the first woman to lead a US Combatant Command. Her 36-year military career is filled with remarkable accomplishments at the highest levels of operations, diplomatic engagement and political coordination.
In that role, she led the soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and civilians from the U.S. and Canada responsible for homeland defense. Today, she dedicates herself as a mentor to those seeking to better balance career demands with personal and family responsibilities.
Through powerful, firsthand stories, she’ll share lessons to help you cultivate inner strength to deal with high-pressure situations and integrate work and life to find equilibrium.
Work/work balance is just as important as work/life balance!
Linda Babcock is a behavioral economist and the founder and director of PROGRESS, which pursues positive social change for women and girls through education, partnerships, and research. According to Babcock and her co-authors’ research, women are more likely to take on non-promotable tasks, or unrewarded responsibilities, at work— everyone benefits when these tasks get done, but sadly, and too often, the person who completes them ends up robbed of valuable time and the promotable work that actually grows paychecks and careers.
She’ll help you identify the characteristics of dead-end work and how to better calculate the impact of taking on the work so that you can steer toward the assignments that matter most for your career.
We’ll break into small groups in Zoom meeting rooms for facilitated discussions on the key takeaways from Lori and Linda, share challenges with one another, and help each other create an action plan that benefits from one another’s experience and lessons.
