What people are saying about Balanced Card Sorts

In my entire school career, no one has ever asked me these kinds of questions before!

Kate, undergraduate student

This morning we used the card sort with a group of freshmen...I overheard one student say, "Wow, that was actually really helpful!" When you get teenage boys specifically engaged with something this important for 30+ minutes, I'd say that's a huge win!

Beth, school counselor

I have students literally knocking on my office door asking when they get to do the card sort...

Heidi, high school administrator

The Work-Life Balance Assessment manages to lead us through a fairly involved exercise simply and quickly, and brings very important information about work-life balance into immediate focus. Wellness values and priorities get clarified in an illuminating way. I think people will get so much out of this tool.  

Elizabeth Clayton, Healthcare System Wellness Specialist

A really stimulating tool that helps put language into a priority setting process, helping users find, live, and be more of what they want. The card sort uniquely makes the process more engaging.

Dr. Rich Feller, Professor, Distinguished Teaching Scholar & NCDA Past President

The Work-Life Balance Card Sort is an incredible tool for helping my clients to clarify their needs and values while quickly pinpointing specific areas that we can work on in therapy together to bring more balance, meaning, and mental wellness into their lives.  

Christy Cole, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

There's something magical that happens as people move cards around and make decisions about what they value. I use many card sorts with clients, and now I'm adding the Work-Life Balance cards to my mix.

Jim Peacock, Principal, Peak Careers Consulting

The card sort helped me figure out where I was feeling stuck in my life. It helped me see that my professional self was thriving and that there was room for growth in my personal sphere. That helped me realize that I had a couple core needs that I could start meeting right away. The clarity this provided changed my perspective and empowered me. I am grateful for this amazing tool!

Jackie, counseling client

I knew when I ventured back into the workforce after having been a stay-at-home parent for 5 years that I wanted to explore a new career path.  The Work-Life Balance Assessment was the perfect tool to help me find my career direction while reminding me that family and time for myself is also important. 

Lisa, counseling client

After 20 years dedicated to my work community, my boundaries between work and life felt helplessly blurred. I used the Work-Life Balance Assessment to reflect on and clarify my priorities and it helped me realize I needed a change. I am grateful for this tool, which enabled me to rearticulate my goals and values, as well as envision a new career path that made me feel excited and optimistic.
