Transcript of Coping with Work-Family Conflict

Occasionally you'll be asked to choose between two different solutions. Simply click the answer you feel appropriate, and the presentation will continue.
This training session will provide you with a set of coping strategies that you can use to reduce work-family conflict
Coping Strategies
We will use videos as well as lectures to provide examples of individuals utilizing these coping methods
Work - family conflict is a form of conflict in which the pressures of work and family are incompatible
This occurs because we do not always have enough resources (time or energy) to meet the demands of both roles
Defining Work - Family Conflict
Reducing Work - Family Conflict
There are successful, viable coping methods that reduce conflict.
The most successful methods attempt to reduce the stressors causing the conflict.
These methods are simple, but easy to forget.
Coping Strategies
Focus on identifying and setting goals
Acquiring, refining, and using resources to better achieve goals
Using help and assistance to achieve goals
Be specific about which goals to pursue
Construct a goal hierarchy
Remain committed
Plan your work day in advance
Don't feel pressured to multitask; focus on specific goals at a time
Selection Quiz
Employees have been laid off in your company, and you have been asked to absorb a number of their former responsibilities. However, managing the increase in workload has proven difficult. What should you do?
Make a list of tasks you
need to accomplish,
rank them in order of priority,
and address them one by one
Spend a few minutes doing each task everyday, so they will all be complete at once

Readjust your goal structure
Seek help from different resources
You are faced with greater than normal demands at your job. Your manager has promised that the increased workload will not be permanent, and you will be able to return to a normal schedule once new employees are hired and trained. What should you do?
Accept the change, since the longer shifts and extra days will only last for a limited time
Ask others for assistance and advice on how to cope during this stressful time
Compensation Video Discussion
Amelia is exhausted because she has to cover more shifts at work due to the restaurant being understaffed

By engaging in these coping strategies, you can maximize the positive and minimize the negative
