Oct. 27: Register now for Work-Life Boundaries Workshop

Posted by isulib on October 10, 2014

As part of the 4th Annual ISU Work-Life Integration Conference, we are pleased to offer the opportunity to participate in a workshop with Dr. Ellen Ernst Kossek on Work-Life Boundaries on Monday, Oct. 27 from 9 – 11 a.m. in Rm 028 in ISU’s Cunningham Memorial Library.

The workshop is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students. Registration will be limited to the first 25 registrants on a first come first serve basis. To register please send an email to Barbara.McNeill@indstate.edu. Registrations received by Oct. 13 will have highest priority. You will receive a link from the center for creative leadership for a pre-training assessment to complete before the workshop.

As many overwhelmed professionals have already discovered for themselves, it’s a myth that it is always easy for busy professionals and scientists can achieve perfect balance between their work and personal lives.

The Work-Life Indicator, a validated assessment tool co-developed by Dr. Ellen Ernst Kossek, Basil S. Turner Professor of Management at Purdue University and the nonprofit Center for Creative Leadership, is a tool to help faculty, staff, and work units develop strategies to improve how to manage time and energy with rising E- work and 24-7 availability.

The workshop is made possible through funding from ISU’s Strategic Plan Goal 6, Initiative #1: “Enhance the quality of life for faculty and staff.” Sponsors include College of Arts and Sciences, College of Nursing, Health and Human Services, College of Technology, Dept. of Economics, Dept. of Human Resource Development and Performance Technologies, Interdisciplinary Programs, the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence and the Cunningham Memorial Library.
