Organizations need to have balance, and so do the individuals that work there, Thoreson said. "As leaders, you have to think about the people in your organization and your own life to make sure you have the right menu," he said. "High-performance organizations have people that are in balance." It can be easy to identify yourself by your job but there's one important question you need to ask yourself, he said. "Who are you when you no longer do what you do?"
As tech-focused companies, solution provider organizations often forget to focus on people and culture, Thoreson said. How will you know when your company has found balance? "Your people are giving their best effort working on the right things," he said.
