What I have found in my research is that most people do not know what worklife negotiation looks like to them. They haven’t spent the time thinking about their current work and life situation and what an ideal worklife situation would be. Even if you do not have the power to change your work and life demands immediately, understanding where you would like to be provides you with a roadmap to make incremental changes to ultimately get to your ideal worklife situation – whether it’s getting more hours at work to pay off debt or cutting back on email at home so you can put your children to bed.
