Since 1980, Americans spend more and more hours on work while also devoting more time to child care. Where did this extra time come from? What price are we paying for it? How might we live better in the face of this new normal?

The dream of work-life balance has exhausted and frustrated a generation of conscientious parents with demanding careers. Balance requires splitting, segregating, and compartmentalizing ourselves into competing domains in the vain hope of protecting each aspect of ourselves from our other interests. Chasing balance is an unwinnable game, like trying to out-run a treadmill. Integration is a more satisfying choice.

Alumnus Tony Mayo will share with webinar participants the insights and techniques his clients have used to create more rewarding and satisfying lives. Come with your questions and concerns. Leave with fresh approaches to creating a life you love.


BIO:
Executive Coach Tony Mayo, AB ’77 & MBA ’78, began coaching in 1992, back when most people expected a coach to wear a whistle and yell from the sidelines. He is a master of analogy and anecdote whose illustrations are as likely to come from his studies of brain science, high energy physics, or eastern philosophy as from his years of management and sales in high-technology.

Whether speaking from a platform, coaching one-on-one, or facilitating a workshop, Tony maintains a laser focus on his goal of helping people realize their dreams.

Tony earned his MBA from the University of Chicago (now, Booth School of Business) at age twenty-one, after three years each of high school and college. He immediately started a business that he sold in 1982.

Tony has worked with Arthur Andersen & General Electric, founded boot-strap and venture-backed start-ups, and taught at the college, graduate, and executive levels. Tony is the author of #1 bestsellers The Courage to Be in Community and business-themed novel Crimes of Cunning. He is also the sole inventor of US Patents 6,678,663 & 7,930,209. His most important activities today are family fun, working with business owners, and total health. All with one unifying purpose: to promote workplaces of humanity and prosperity where people can be productive and satisfied.
