  • Work Shouldn’t Feel Like A Job!
  • I read an inspirational Instagram post the other day by the wonderful Brian Falchuk which said “Life Shouldn’t Feel Like a Job”. I agree completely. And sometimes it does, doesn’t it, espcially when you’re trying to juggle family, work, personal interests, being healthy, managing your finances, maybe getting to see your friends at some point, staying on top of your Instagram posts…!

  • Don’t resolve…evolve!
  • I used to do my New Year’s Resolutions with great gusto. I recall a list of more than 50 resolutions when I was a teenager covering everything from how I would take more care with various aspects of my appearance to how I would stop myself putting my foot in it to how I would be more like other people and less of a weirdo.

Episode 80: Sarah Jackson OBE, CEO of Working Families
Episode 80: Sarah Jackson OBE, CEO of Working Families10/07/2018

Do you find it harder and harder to balance having a family with having a job? According to the 2018 Modern Families Index, when UK parents were asked how they felt about their employer in terms of work-life balance, over a third of parents surveyed said they felt resentful, with more fathers than mothers agreeing. The report was published by Working Families, the UK’s leading Work-Life Balance Organisation. In today’s show, I interview Sarah Jackson OBE, the CEO of Working Families. Sarah has campaigned for a better balance between work and life for over 20 years. Sarah is incredibly optimistic and I felt really excited talking to her about what might be possible in the future, but it's certainly clear that we have a way to go. It’s down to us as individuals - and leaders - to create a revolution in how we work so that we can happily combine what we do for a job with having a life! You can read the UK Modern Families Index report and find out more about [Working Families][1] on their website. Their mission is to achieve a society that allows real choice in balancing the interdependent demands of family, work and community at different life stages and so enables everyone to realise their full potential.
