What is the secret of people who successfully manage their different tasks and roles in their lives without constantly feeling like running in the treadmill? What is their key to resilience in challenging situations? How do they get it all under one roof without burning out? In this interactive talk, Daniela Elsner, business-life coach, psychotherapist (HPr.G), professor of learning and teaching, mother of 3 and author of the book “Ausgebalanced” (Gabal Verlag) shares her personal and scientific knowledge on how successful people get “it all” under one roof. Her first recommendation: “Forget the work-life balance, tailor your life!” 

Participants will critically examine the current model of work-life-balance and understand that a balanced life is a very individual perception, which starts with self-responsibility and the right attitude towards individual life goals. Participants will learn about a new model for work-life design and its underlying principles to achieve more satisfaction with one’s (working) life by explicitly applying selected resilience strategies.

In addition to the talk, we are happy to offer 9 slots for individual coachings with Prof Dr Elsner, where insights from the talk can be consolidated and you can discuss your individual situation in a safe space to identify potential solutions and strategies.

The talk takes place in English. The coaching sessions can be in either English or German.

Registration for the talk and coachings opens on 1st October. Coaching slots will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please register here.
