Going Beyond Work-Life Balance

12:00PM - 01:00PM

Have you struggled with trying to find the elusive work-life balance?  Do you get bogged down with the day-to-day hustle? Work-life balance used to be an elusive and challenging goal for many, but now it's only part of the required formula for happiness and success.  To reach your full potential and live the life you've always wanted, you must shift your mindset and approach from the traditional notion of balance into the 21st century way of thinking and managing your life.  In this motivational webinar, John Walsh, author, and entrepreneur will help you make this transformational change. You will learn about the four primary areas of your life, the key questions you should ask yourself, and the specific tactics you can take to live a life beyond limits.

About the author: John Walsh is the Founder and CEO of StandoutX, a people performance and leadership company with an international podcast with the same name. John is an author, speaker, coach, and business advisor who previously had a  career as a Finance and Strategy executive with The Walt Disney Company and The Madison Square Garden Company.

12:00PM - 01:00PM Washington College of Law

We are excited to announce TLS’ new student-focused initiative, NatSec Brown Bags, with TLS Scholars-in-Residence Corin Stone and Alex Joel, and others from the TLS team.

Are you interested in national security but don’t know much about it? Do you want to work in the Intelligence Community but aren’t sure how to apply? Do you just want to chat about current legal developments related to national security? 

Come join TLS national security professionals for a monthly informal chat about NatSec issues that span the Intelligence Community, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense, the US Government, privacy, and current events. We’ll answer your questions and provide thoughts on job opportunities, work-life balance, and more. No stress, just fun!

Who: Any WCL student – no need to have taken a national security class or have any background in natsec – just need to be interested!

When: Second Thursday of every month, 12-1pm. BYO lunch!

             [Nov 12, Dec 10, Jan 14, etc…]

Why: To give students an informal opportunity to chat with seasoned national security professionals about national security careers and other topics. To provide a better understanding of the US government’s national security agencies, roles, policies, and issues in an informal setting. To provide the opportunity for students to ask questions and get informal advice and mentoring, even if not taking a NatSec course.

How to Change Anyone’s Mind

We push and push, but often nothing happens. Could there be a better way? In this webinar, New York Times Best Selling Author, Jonah Berger, introduces a revolutionary change approach. Successful change isn’t about pushing harder or exerting more energy.
