The danger of work life balance

Date: 3 March 2020
Time: 12:00-13:00

It is critical to understand why those of us, especially in prosperous countries with high living standards, continue to get sick, particularly due to work-related stress. 

Morten Albaek attacks the idea of ‘work-life balance’ and advocates that we have lost our ability to distinguish between satisfaction, happiness and meaning.

The most read philosophical book in Denmark in 2018 and 2019, Morten’s book One Life advocates that we should see ourselves as ‘one human being’ with one life that should be as meaningful as possible.

This webinar will explore why meaning – not happiness – is the most important ingredient in our lives, businesses and society.
