The demands of work and life have always put a strain on our well-being. Then COVID struck, and everything got more intense for us, our loved ones, as well as our work family. As work transitioned to the home with increased caregiving responsibilities, many felt as if they were drowning in “domestic” work while facing work policies and management that didn’t support them. This has been particularly true for women. To avoid the inevitable burnout that lies at the end of this path and to restore well-being, we need to take action now as HR professionals.

This month’s guest is New York Times best-selling author, Eve Rodsky. In her new book, Finding Your Unicorn Space, she reveals the critical importance of creating and prioritizing time for activities that unleash your creativity and allowing the space to be uniquely “you.” She calls this Unicorn Space. We’ll explore how creating Unicorn Space is the key to weathering the inevitable storms of work and life.

We will also discuss her “3 rules of permission”:

  • Permission to be unavailable
  • Permission to burn guilt and shame
  • Permission to use your voice

And she’ll share how learning these rules will empower you and those you support to write self-created “permission slips” to find greater happiness and well-being.

Don’t miss this dynamic and candid conversation that will help you both improve your own well-being and do the same for those you support and care for at work.
