Introduction

When the C-Suite wants to make flexible work part of its organization’s business strategy, they call Cali Williams Yost, CEO and Founder of the Flex+Strategy Group/Work+Life Fit,Inc. 

An internationally-recognized consultant, author and keynote speaker, Cali has spent more than fifteen years inspiring hundreds of organizations, such as BDO USA, Pearson, Novo Nordisk, and the United Nations, and tens of thousands of individuals to partner for award-winning flexible work success. 

Hailed by the New York Times as “one of the smartest” and “sophisticated thinkers,” Cali is a former Senior Research Associate at Families and Work Institute, commercial banker and an honors graduate of Columbia Business School. 

She is author of the critically acclaimed Work+Life:Finding the Fit That’s Right for You (Riverhead/Penguin Group, 2005), the first work+life “fit” (not, balance) handbook for individuals. Her new book, TWEAK IT: Make What Matters to You Happen Every Day (Center Street/Hachette) will be released in January, 2013.

Since 2007, Cali has contributed to Fast Company.com, and, every year since 2010, her Work+Life Fit® Blog has been voted one of the Top 100 Websites for Women by Forbes.com.

Her unique, often contrarian perspective on work and life in a modern, hectic world has been featured in numerous national media outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Newsweek, USA Today, NPR and Fox Business News. 

She lives in New Jersey with her husband and two children. Connect with Cali via email and on Twitter @caliyost.
