ABOUT THE ARGENAL INSTITUTE

The Argenal Institute is putting a flag in the ground against the hustle-and-grind burnout culture. We’re tired of seeing so many loving, committed, hard-working parents kill themselves to be everything to everyone, and losing themselves in the process. They’re missing their lives, especially those precious, critical early years with their kids. All working parents want is to continue to thrive in their career while also staying connected and engaged at home… and they’re failing because our culture isn’t set up to support working parents. If we want relief, we need to shift the culture, one person, one family, and one company at a time. We also rebel against the pervasive myth that there is one blanket solution that will help everyone, or that surface level solutions will fix everything. Working parents are searching high and low for what will create meaning in their lives:

More time, energy, and focus

Connected and healthy relationships

Meaningful and stimulating work

Happiness, ease and fun

Confidence in your choices

A strong sense of personal identity

Freedom from frustration and regrets

To stop numbing out and actually experience your life

 What none of the gurus out there will tell you is that all of these qualities start with self-awareness. That’s the first step to truly experiencing any of these things in your life. It all starts there, and none of the things working parents crave are possible without it.

 

The Whole SELF Lifestyle™ is a philosophy that addresses, in a manageable, strategic, and concrete way, how to pursue self-discovery and greater fulfillment, even in the midst of overwhelm. Using the Whole SELF Lifestyle™ Method, we break that philosophy down into practice. You learn how to analyze and improve each area of your life, and then blend them in your own unique way to create a full and balanced life as a working parent. We as working parents are capable of so much more, within ourselves, in our families, in our career, and in our communities. We have the tools, the technology, and the research to make meaningful shifts in this new era of parenting and work. It’s time to apply what we know to create a healthier and happier culture, both at work and at home.
