Why Work-Life Balance is the Wrong Idea

A Better ‘Balance’ Is Finding the Right Job for Your Purpose, Says Talent Expert

By Brian Mohr
The corporate world is susceptible to fads. Work-life balance, a push to properly prioritize work in relation to lifestyle, features the kind of fad-ish thinking that can lead gifted people down the wrong path, says talent expert Brian Mohr. “Think of those who love their job – for them, it’s not exactly ‘work’ as they exercise their capabilities fully toward a goal that they believe in,” says Mohr, co-founder and managing partner for Y Scouts (yscouts.com), a purpose-based leadership search firm.

Ask The Secret Shopper

Each apartment community has certain features and benefits, which are the selling points of that particular community. It could be its location, friendly staff, spacious floor plans, beautiful landscaping or affordable price; just to name a few. Yet even with the most fabulous features, there will be times when the apartments you have available won’t seem to meet the needs of your prospective renters. The following question from a leasing consultant addresses this issue:
Q: We have several vacant apartments right now and I know I’m supposed to try and rent all of them, but how can I rent to someone when it doesn’t seem like the apartment will really meet their needs?

More Consumers Positive On Housing, But Not Quite Ready to Leave the Sidelines Survey Results Suggest Continued Modest Housing Growth in 2015

Results from Fannie Mae's April 2015 National Housing Survey™ show some improvement in housing sentiment, but likely not enough to trigger any breakout improvements in housing market activity this year. Among those surveyed, the share saying they would prefer to buy a home if they were to move increased to 63 percent in April, following a drop of six percentage points in February and March. In addition, average home price growth expectations continued their steady climb from late last year, with respondents now saying home prices will increase by 2.8 percent during the next 12 months. However, the share who believe this is a good time to buy a home decreased by four percentage points as consumer concerns regarding high home prices surged for a second consecutive month, matching renewed concerns regarding the state of the economy.
