Banana hot fudge malts? Or Margheritas perhaps?

Yesterday, we had lunch with 200+ HR executives who are considering ‘blending’ to be a central concept in helping them live and work with less worry, and deeper satisfaction. The keynote speaker was this guy named Paul Batz, who has this idea that living with blended goals around the Seven Fs: Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Friends, Fun and Future will help people lead the life they imagine.

We laughed at ourselves, learned from each other and generally shared a swimmingly good time! The speech was immediately after lunch and no one took a nap (although napping during a meeting could be considered effective blending.) For some reason, this group particularly enjoyed thinking of themselves as “Rock Stars.” If you want a taste of what we shared…watch this clip. http://www.youtube.com/user/PaulBatz85#p/u/6/QGH5zrYV9VQ

Looking ahead — the Work/Life and Flexibility Expo was an excellent springboard for the Seven Fs project. We added the insights of 200 more people to our research, and we continued to build momentum for the Seven Fs movement. We are so grateful for the people who say: “you are onto something special here.” Now…I need to get back to work — tim and I only have 23 days left before the book deadline.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

    Great event! Your words of wisdom are indeed a great blend of “What Really Works”. Can’t wait to learn more from the research and the book. But more importantly, in my humble opinion, how to incorporate these values into our workplaces. Keep up the great work!
