Lise was a successful senior executive with an important decision to make about her future. She was returning to work after a short career break, catching up with her family after a history of jobs with a demanding work and travel schedule. Lise's job search had reached the stage where a couple of choices had presented themselves. Both were exciting but she could not ignore the fact that each one had its negative aspects too.
Work/life fusion assisted Lise's decision because it helped her gain a better understanding of what was important to her. With this new knowledge, Lise could explore the positives and negatives in each option and for the first time have a meaningful benchmark to compare them against.
Supported by a clearer view of her values, talents and goals, Lise was able to chose a role that delivered both personally and professionally. In the context of work/life fusion, Lise's story is an excellent example of defining personal success to enable you and those around you to recognise the opportunities that deliver it best.
