As CEO of recruitment specialist YoungCapital, I’ve experienced that running a business isn’t something you do ‘on the side’. You’re fully responsible for a company and its people, which I find very rewarding. But it also means you have to be fully committed because the work never really ends. At times, it may be challenging to keep up with the pace, especially when you have a family. How can you safeguard the right work-life balance? In my experience, it depends – for the most part – on making clear decisions on how to organize your life. Which isn’t always easy. I believe leaders play an important role in encouraging people to take autonomy in how they organize their time. If you give people this freedom, you’ll see their flexibility increase. Which leads to more peace of mind, more balance and better performance.
