Manlius, NY (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
A new series of workshops for the overstressed seeking balance between their work and personal lives was announced today. The seminar, dubbed 'Weekend of Gumption' (tm), is based on the book 'The Road to Gumption: Using Your Inner Courage to Balance Your Work and Personal Life' by author and consultant Gary Lim, M.A.
According to a recent survey by Yahoo! HotJobs, nearly 75 percent of people asked said that they use their wireless devices equally for work and personal reasons. Almost 30 percent are so addicted to them that they turn the devices off only while they are sleeping. And 67 percent admitted that they have used the device to connect to work even while on vacation.
"The blurring of the line between work and personal lives is the cause of great angst for many," said Lim. "When you can't tell what day it is unless you look at your smartphone, then it's time to step back for a moment and reflect."
A Weekend of Gumption seminar takes place on select Saturdays and affords participants the opportunity to interact with Lim in a confidential, supportive environment. Enrollment to each seminar is limited to a maximum of about 20 attendees, to maximize the amount of personal attention the author can give to each participant.
The workshop allows participants to internalize and apply the author's concepts of the 5 P's of Change and his 11 Rules of Gumption to their own personal situations. During this highly interactive seminar, Lim offers his perspectives and guidance to each participant or couple. At the conclusion of the session, each attendee will leave with key ideas and action items for constructing their own implementation plan for balancing their work and personal goals. "There are no naysayers at the Weekend of Gumption," said Lim. "People attending the seminar want to travel their own Road to Gumption, so it is indeed a very supportive environment."
More important than the workshop interaction itself, each attendee of the Weekend of Gumption receives 3 months of unlimited email dialogue with the author, following the conclusion of the seminar. After participants return home and start to flesh out their implementation plans, they are free to interact with Lim via email and receive his coaching and feedback for the early going of their journey. If a couple enrolls in the workshop, the couple receives 6 months of dialogue. "This unlimited email dialogue with me for months after the Weekend of Gumption ends is critical to getting the journey off on the right foot," said Lim. "If you don't act in the first few days or weeks, you might not act at all."
In 2007, the Weekend of Gumption is scheduled to appear in select U.S. cities including San Francisco, Rochester (NY), Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Hartford/Springfield. Please go to the Web site for the complete schedule and details:
