Work-Life Separation and Work-Life Integration by Bill Guillory, PhD

Balancing-work-and-family

Work-Life Separation

  • Our work and personal life are separate. They often conflict with each other.
  • Work and personal life activities are artificially separated by an imaginary line of times and activities.
  • Daily activities are arranged and executed primarily based upon the clock and traditional thinking.
  • Experiencing frustration by attempting to manage time in a traditional way in an environment that has changed.
  • Multitasking to the detriment of personal relationships and life quality.
  • A mind-set that attempts to balance the allocation of time and energy separately to our work and personal life.
  • Managing life’s events and activities as a marathon with long, hard hours and inadequate recovery time.
  • As a manager, a mind-set that work-life balance is solely the responsibility of the employee. Time off is the enemy of productivity.

Work-Life Integration

  • We are holistic human beings. Our work and personal life are one.
  • Work and personal life activities are integrated throughout the day.
  • Daily activities are arranged and executed based upon necessity, practicality, efficiency, and spontaneity.
  • Accepting the necessity of work-life integration because there are more activities. Then managing the activities.
  • Maintaining focus by recognizing the difference between, the alteration of activities and multitasking.
  • Recognizing balance as the ability to maintain equilibrium in a sea of change by basing choices on innermost values.
  • Managing life’s events and activities as a series of sprints with alternate recovery time.
  • As a manager, the recognition that work- life balance has two parts:

1) What the company can do to help employees achieve it
2) What employees can do for themselves
