Name: Steve Bolduc

Age: 60
Home town: Phoenix, Ariz.

Three years ago, Steve Bolduc was a project manager at Stanley Consultants, a global engineering consulting firm. At the time, he was working 50-plus hours a week and most weekends. Then he made a change he had long thought about: With the approval of his managers, he began teaching colleagues how to take on some of his duties. He also changed his position, working 22 hours a week as a co-manager on traffic engineering highway design projects.
