This interactive workshop offers you the opportunity to achieve your personal work-life balance. During this workshop, you will learn about how to achieve your personal work-life balance by (1) prioritising work and private goals and (2) optimally spending your time and energy to realise those goals. Through a series of practical exercises, you will learn to identify and focus on what's truly important to you.

Aims and working method

The aim of the workshop is to learn how to achieve your personal work-life balance. There are two sessions, consisting of reflection exercises and practical training directly applied to your work-life situation.

The workshop will be held in small groups, which allows you to reflect and ask questions about your personal situation. Participants will be informed well in advance by email on how to prepare for the sessions.
