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.

  • 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.

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 course. Most is common sense but I also learned a few things. I would recommend this course. Would have been better without the background music.
