Yahoo panel: There’s no such thing as work-life balance

Oh the irony of posting on this right after my post on the Iron Lady! She had no balance too.

For a while now I have been outspoken that I think balance is a myth and we are unfair to young women coming up to spin the myth that they can have it all. They can’t any more than men can. Business is just too competitive.

So it was fun for me last week to be on a panel at Yahoo on Breakthrough Leadership Lessons and to be asked about work-life balance. Never the shrinking violet I just went for it as you can see here – and was relieved they laughed instead of chasing me out of the building!
