Examines the shifting demographic, economic, and social forces--the changing gAnder roles, harsher economic realities, and dual career families--that pull managers and executives out of balance. Draws on ten years of research, consulting, and training on the topic to describe the cost of imbalance to individuals and organizations and tells how to restore equilibrium. Provides numerous checklists and self-assessment tools to help determine the degree and the nature of imbalance in our lives and in our organizations. Outlines a step-by-step process for personal change that can lead to an improved quality of life and provides individuals with a blueprint for initiating organizational changes that jointly optimize personal development and organizational effectiveness."The definitive guide for finding balance in our personal and organizational lives. I have added Joan Kofodimos's insightful work to the 'must-read list' for our executive programs."--Robert W. Conroy, M.D., director, Menninger Management Institute
