In this course we discuss how remote employees can obtain a work-life balance, even when working from home.  

We begin with a brief overview of work-life balance and discuss why it can be especially challenging to balance your work and lifestyle at home. We visualize what a healthy homebased work- life balance looks like and then we complete a personal work-life balance assessment to identify individual areas of focus.

Afterwards, we work through the 7 common work-life misconceptions employees endure when working from home and how to combat them. Then, we delve into over 25 unique tips and tricks for increasing work-life balance from home. At the end of the course, we develop an action plan with home based work-life balance techniques that will align with an individual's personal goals. 

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the challenges of work- life balance at home.
  • Identify the 7 work-life misconceptions employees endure while working from home.
  • Recognize how to be successful with work-life balance while working at home.
  • Discover techniques for increasing home based work-life balance.

Overall very insightful. Was good to be able to look at the balance of working from home and personal time. I haven't started working from home yet but will take all of this into consideration for when I do in the next few weeks.

Class was very well done and covered material in a professional manner. Only problem with me was I only have hearing in one ear, the background music made it hard for me to hear the speaker.

Good class; however, the music was very distracting on a few of her videos. It got really hard to hear her when the music was drowning out her voice.

The content and action guide (part of supporting materials) are helpful, but be prepared for minimal visuals in the presentation itself.
