From a man thought of by many as the ‘Manager of the Century’ : For 41 years, my operating principle was; work hard, play hard and spend some time as a father. I felt my life was perfectly balanced. It felt like it had everything in it, all in the right amounts. Jack Welch From a man thought of by many as the ‘Manager of the Century’ Slide 3: Work – Activities done regularly for MONEY Slide 4: Life – Everything Else What is it all about? : Work-life balance" was coined to address the unhealthy life choices that many people were making; they were choosing to neglect other important areas of their lives such as family, friends, and hobbies in favor of work-related chores and goals What is it all about? Slide 7: But looking back, it is clear that the balance I chose had consequences for the people around me at home and at the office. For instance, my kids were raised , largely alone, by their mother, Carolyn. My defense, if there is one, is that those were the times. Fathers were different then. In general, it was assumed that wives stayed at home to make everything run smoothly.

Still, 25 years ago, when I was entering broadcasting, it wasn’t possible to achieve the highest levels and raise babies along the way. It was my choice. Of course I wanted children. But I chose to put my career first, and I cannot blame anyone for my happiness or lack thereof.” Let me tell you what I gave upMaxine of NBC I hadn’t had a good laugh in 15 years : I hadn’t read the newspaper with a cup of coffee or played with the dog or called an old friend.
