Making a Buck versus Making a Difference
LAS 377 - Making a Buck versus Making a Difference3 hours A large part of how we define ourselves has always been by what we “do for a living;” however, we also maintain a “personal life” outside of the work environment. In today’s fast-paced business environment and society, this compartmentalization/separation can lead to tension and conflict as we seek to achieve a “work-life balance.” Is it a matter of “balance” or one of “integration?” Must we separate making a living from making a difference? How can we find our true place in an increasingly depersonalized, technological world? These are among the questions that this course will explore – leveraging a wide range of perspectives on this subject.
