Who has the best balance? Dave Bella Maria
Dave Dave gets into school at 8am every morning and always leaves before 5pm. He never takes any work home with him. Last Thursday he went out with his friends, he didn’t talk about work at all, had a great night, he relaxed and he got home at about 10.30pm. His flatmate was at home watching TV when he got in. Before he went into the lounge to join him he went to quickly check his emails. There was one from his Head of Department there which he felt he had to reply to. By the time he got back to the lounge his flatmate had gone to bed.
Bella Bella has been a headteacher for 6 years. She has recently been appointed to take over a new school in special measures. She knows that she needs to turn the school around very quickly but she is faced with low staff morale, high levels of truancy and concerned parents. Bella rarely gets home before 8pm each night and takes work home with her each weekend. She hasn’t had time yet to go and see her new grandchild who was born three weeks ago. Despite her busy life, Bella always makes the time to get up early in the morning and walk her dog Jack.
Maria Every day by about 4pm Maria is suffering from a severe headache. She’s got the strongest pain killers she can get over the counter but they’re not working. Her head of department came to see her at 4.30pm yesterday and asked her to complete some urgent paperwork. Until then Maria had been unaware that this needed doing so agreed to complete it and didn’t get home until nearly 8pm. By then she was shattered and barely spoke to her partner before collapsing into bed.
