Success Tips for Workaholic Businessmen – A Tech With Heart Interview with Rick Broniec and Leonard Szymczak
For many men, being a workaholic has been seen as a badge of honor, a sign of dedication and commitment to their careers. However, this mindset can often lead to a lack of balance between work and personal life, which can take a toll on mental and physical health, relationships, and overall happiness.
Achieving a quality work/life balance is essential for both men and women, as it allows us to prioritize our personal lives, hobbies, and interests outside of work. It also enables us to recharge and be more productive in our jobs, leading to better job satisfaction and higher levels of success.
“It is possible to be successful in business and as a man.” – Rick Broniec
For workaholic men, belonging to a men’s circle, and tapping into their emotional intelligence can be powerful tools in achieving this balance. Emotional intelligence involves the ability to recognize, understand, and manage one’s emotions and those of others, allowing for better communication, relationships, and self-awareness. Men’s circles offer comradery, accountability, friendship, and much-needed encouragement when it comes to improving upon one’s self, and relationships in general.
Tech With Heart Founder, Michelle Calloway, Media and Technology Strategist, interviewed Rick Broniec and Leonard Szymczak, authors of Power Tools For Men, to share their insights on how workaholic businessmen can achieve a successful work-life balance.
“Find a way to make work fun.” – Leonard Szymczak
This interview discusses the following points:
- Men perpetrate almost 98% of mass shootings in the US, commit 90% of homicides, make up 93% of the prison population, and commit suicide 7 times more often than women.
- Men are inherently good, caring, noble beings. However, some male behaviors, encoded in the ‘traditional masculine ideology’ are toxic—and many men do not know how to stop them.
- Learn success tips on how to get more quality of life on a personal and professional level
- Learn more about emotional intelligence and how to open that side of the brain
- Learn tech tools that help structure a healthy maintenance system
By developing emotional intelligence skills, workaholic men can better understand their own motivations and priorities, as well as the impact their actions have on others. This can help them make more informed decisions about their work schedules, set realistic expectations for themselves and others, and create boundaries that allow for more time with family and friends.
In addition, emotional intelligence can also help workaholic men cultivate deeper, more meaningful relationships outside of work. By understanding and connecting with others on an emotional level, they can build stronger connections and find fulfillment beyond their careers.
