A Balancing Trick: Nigel Marsh on TED

Nigel Marsh, Chairman of the consultancy The Leading Edge and author of several books on work-life balance, gives a humorous and insightful TED talk on the work-life balance issue

Work-life balance has become, if not a buzz-word, a hopeful wish for many executives for whom time is a commodity that is traded in the relentless tug-of-war between professional performance/recognition and private/family life. Casual Fridays and flexi-time are not the core of the question, states Marsh: if society is to make any progress on the issue, the first thing we need is an honest debate.

Watch Nigel Marsh’s TED talk and the four keys to really finding the right balancing trick.
