Ted Talk “Work-Life Balance: Balancing Time or Balancing Identity?” by Michelle Ryan
Women’s ambition drops off as they come to believe the chance they have to be successful drops off. Feeling like you have a good wlb is about feeling like you are similar to people that have gone before you. irrespective of how much time you have spent at work. be simialr to succusff others reinforces your own self image.
Some argue that many women choose not to go into particular jobs because of the long hours required and the sacrifices that need to be made — thereby making women seem less ambitious and more attracted to the idea of work-life balance than men. But is there really something innate about a desire for work-life balance that women have, or is there something more complex going on here? In her TED talk, Michelle Ryan teaches us about the complexities involved in these decisions and presents cutting-edge research into ambition and work-life balance across the gender divide.
