With work as a part of every professional's life, it's no surprise that work-life balance is simply a myth. So what keeps the busiest leaders sane?

On July 8, the Dynamics of Leadership conference will present a panel about "Achieving Work-Life Balance: How to Prioritize Competing Priorities," featuring inspiring leaders Pamela Lam, Jared Leung, Marcy Luganob and Vicente Reid. The panel will be moderated by Michelle Loposky, an accomplished U.S. Army veteran who serves as a Military Advocate for Arizona State University's Pat Tillman Veterans Center.

Each panelist will discuss their proven tips for identifying and balancing priorities, helping you make the most of your time and your values in every 24-hour day. By the end of the talk, attendees will feel strongly equipped and ready to lead in their workplace, community and personal lives with more time to spare.

Lam is the Vice President of Research & Development for Henkel of North America. Her hard work not only shown in her resume -- which boasts over a decade of working with huge household brand names -- but in her successful prioritization of family and traveling, as well.

Luganob, the Assistant Desk Manager for NBC Universal's Telemundo Arizona news, has worked in local TV news for over two decades as an editor and assistant manager. While keeping busy in the ever-changing media industry, she does not let her work schedule stop her from leading a well-rounded life.

Leung is a Partner at Davis Miles McGuire Gardner, a leading law firm in the region. He has taken his practice throughout the U.S. and Asia. Today, he continues his success in his profession, while continuing to lead in the community through a major role in the National Asian Pacific American Bar Assocation and as a founding member of the Bangkok District Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

As the CEO and Executive Director of the Arizona Asian Chamber of Commerce, Reid wears many hats. He is the co-publisher and editor of the Asian SUN News and the Civic Engagement Manager for Asian Pacific Community in Action. In addition, he is affiliated with over 10 AAPI organizations, demonstrating that a love for family and education does not have to hinder one's passions for community, politics and more.

No matter what position you take on, your dream team is bound to face conflict, whether openly expressed or repressed. But while conflict is inevitable, Nobumichi Hara is helping rising leaders put negative results in the past.

Hara has acted as the Senior Vice President and Chief Talent Officer for Goodwill of Central Arizona for 10 years. With over 25 years of experience in top-level HR positions, Hara is often recognized for his creative and innovative approaches to conflict resolution and workplace environments numerous times. These national and local awards -- including numerous awards for being the best employer to work for -- prove his ability to build loyal, resilient teams through positive conflict communication.

On July 8, Hara will discuss "Overcoming Conflict and the Fear Inside" at the Dynamics of Leadership conference to help attendees face issues in any setting head-on, as he has successfully done for nearly three decades. As a result, leaders will rise, face their fears and find satisfaction in their professions, as a result of honest and direct communication.

In 2011, Hara demonstrated his strong ability to act on powerful topics by testifying before the U.S. House Subcommittee on workforce protections, as a part of its review of the Fair Labor Standards Act. In 2012, he won the Ann Byrnes, SPHR Award for Professional Excellence.

Today, Hara continues to dedicate his time to the community as a whole by serving on multiple not-for-profit boards. These include boards for United Way, The Senior Human Resource Executive Council and more.

Hara earned his MBA at California State University, Long Beach and holds a Senior Professional Human Resources certification. He has worked directly with CEOs and boards to deliver business strategies, with proven results in human resource management for growing companies.
