One of the greatest challenges for busy, successful and creative people juggling several projects, talents and ideas is to live a well-rounded life. If only we could “balance” the creative and the practical, the personal and the professional, the urgent and the important.

If only we could do all that is on our personal and professional ‘to do’ lists while simultaneously attending to our health, nurturing our important relationships, and taking good care of our responsibilities. What if the whole concept of life-work balance is a myth that compels us to view an ideal life as a perfectly level see saw? On one side is your personal life. On the other side is your work life.

With heroic efforts, you can keep both sides exactly level. If one starts to tip too far, you make some kind of nifty move that balances them again. In reality, that perfect balance almost never occurs, except for those rare, fleeting moments when each side passes each other on the way up or down — and we’re often too frazzled to appreciate that brief moment of self-actualization anyway. In this engaging, entertaining, and thought-provoking presentation, Lisa challenges the status quo thinking of trying to achieve the ever-elusive quest of life-work “balance.”

Lisa asks participants to shed their old way of thinking and embrace an integrated approach to the life-work model. She inspires participants to stop trying to balance the mythical see-saw so that work and family demands and rewards are exactly even and, instead, take steps to integrate the two for greater happiness and control. What’s special about this presentation is that Lisa uses her performance background to engage the audience with clever and comical skits that deliver a powerful message with emotional impact.
