Welcome and Keynote Presentation: Seek Harmony, Not Balance - Shennice Cleckley
Recorded On: 05/12/2022
This is the recording of the THRIVE Virtual 2022: Seek Harmony, Not Balance.
Do you ever say to yourself: There’s just not enough time in the day…? Do you ever look at your growing to-do list and wonder how you’ll ever get it all done? Do you find yourself at the end of the workday wishing you had spent your time differently?
All of these are examples of how we try to achieve “balance” between what our work demands from us and our life requires of us. Balance is when you’re trying to make everything equal. The truth is, trying to achieve balance can drive you bonkers!
Instead, THRIVE keynote presenter Shennice Cleckley invites you to embrace work-life harmony. Harmony allows you to prioritize what’s important for you at the time that it’s important. It also allows for you to flow. It gives you the ability to put a little more energy here or a little more energy there, which enables you to truly choose what’s best for your life based on who you want to be and where you want to go.
With work-life harmony, there’s no guilt or shame. Why? Because you’re making a choice, not bending to demands under pressure. Cleckley will teach you how to accomplish this. Don’t miss this inspiring, empowering, and strategic keynote presentation.
