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.

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.
