    Food for Thought - Working on working less.

    "I work way too many hours."

    I work in adland, or to be more precise I work in a land of way too many hours. The 50-hour week, the 60-hour week...what about the 80-hour week when the pitch is on. If that sounds familiar read on: 

    When did the number of hours we work in a week become a sign of how good we are at our job? Are we in adland to blame, or are the unreasonable expectations of clients and unmovable deadlines? Or is it just business and we should take it on the chin?

    If we're honest about it, do we expect younger colleagues to work overly arduous hours as a rite of passage? 

    And what about the people who seem to be just more efficient? Are we doing something wrong or are they just work shy and don't have the same stamina?

    If these questions ring true to you or your agency, this month's Food For Thought will draw on a panel of smart folk to share their experiences of working too many hours, how agencies can improve work life balance and how individuals can take back control of their working hours.

    Join us for a healthy discussion, insights and tips on how we can help each other and ourselves enjoy a more normal working schedule.

    Panelists include:

    Jen Sterling, Managing Director and Partner, Sterling Rice Group

    Blair Brookman, HR Manager, TDA

    Chris Dalton, President & Coach, Empowered Achievers

    Ben Castelli, Agency Director, Room 214

    Chris Hess, Creative Director/Founder, Mondo Robot

    Principle/ECD Young and Laramore

    Mentorless: One ECD's journey without a map and the places it took her.


    I have worked at the same agency my entire life. 

    And yet (perhaps surprisingly) my story is one of transformation.

    When I became ECD at Young & Laramore I was in a new position—for me, and for my agency. There had never been an "ECD" at Y&L before. Making it the first time in my career that I was truly in uncharted territory—mentorless—and without a roadmap.

    So I set out to change that. By gathering wisdom from those who had been where I knew I wanted to go.

    This is the chronicle of my journey over the last two years and the ever-expanding list of mentors, friends, challengers and future game-changers I have met along the way.
