As the title reveals, this rant on work/life balance isn’t G-rated so you should watch it with that warning.
I appreciated the following reminders:
– As managers, we’re being watched for the signal to go home.
– Productivity nosedives when you work overtime
That said, the tone is more cynical than my own would be. She reduces workers to “business assets” when many, including public servants in particular, have chosen career paths that support a passion or interest. She also talks about “escape plans” where I’d prefer to focus on what we are running to: supporting a life outside of work that honours our other personal values including connection to our communities and creativity.
