Career Redesign Tools For Work-Life Balance
Partnering with the University of Pennsylvania Law School and the Wharton School, Thirdpath Institute, a non-profit whose mission is "To assist individuals and families in finding new ways to redesign work to create time for family, community and other life priorities," held a 2-day conference in May, 2004 for lawyers, entitled "Having a Life: Creating Work-Life Balance in the Law." I was part of a small team of career and work-life professionals who facilitated small group breakout sessions that were held throughout the conference.
Thirdpath Institute, under the direction of Jessica DeGroot and Hanne Weedon, is a thought-leader and ground-breaker in the work-life field because it works at two levels concurrently. First, it developed concrete tools for thinking about and implementing work re-design: analytic, structural, etc. Second, into this highly structured and analytic approach, it also includes a second methodology which allows people to tap into the emotional and highly personal level of these kinds of changes. A mother of young children might apply Thirdpath's "Four Ways to Flex Your Work" and consider working a four-day week. And through paired listening, she might get in touch with how terrified she was of being "mommy-tracked" by the managing partners and her peers.
Tapping into and working with the emotional and personal ups and downs is a highly interactive process. In the small groups at the conference we made room and set the context for people to share some of their internal process. When I coach a client through a work re-design process of any magnitude, the coaching conversation becomes a place for the client to "check in" on the issues, and determine an action plan. For example, one lawyer who works from home on Fridays was on a 2-hour conference call with several people, including one of her managing partners. After the call, her managing partner called her and asked her if she was "in" today. She responded, "I am working today, if that's what you mean."
ThirdPath has come up with a beautifully structured approach to work re-design. They offer Six Steps for Integrating Work and Life, and Four Ways to Flex Your Work. Here are the Four Ways to Flex Your Work.
