Life is short. Too often we have seen burn out and stress, causing ill-health and adversely affecting our relationships.

No job is worth that!

” Well-being is about the combination of our love for what we do each day, the quality of our relationships, the security of our finances, the vibrancy of our physical health , and the pride we take in what we have contributed to our communities. Most importantly, it’s about how these five elements interact. “

 – Tom Rath

At Like-Minded, we aim for a work-life balance that keeps us, and our clients, healthy and happy. We encourage open and honest conversations when the balance is off and help each other to bring it back in line. To help us keep on track , our regular staff check-ins use a simple, yet effective way of making sure that one area of our life is not getting attention at the expense of another. We follow The Five Essential Elements of Wellbeing (Tom Rath). These five critical areas of our lives are interdependent; focusing on any one of them in isolation can lead to frustration and failure.
