    She or he makes time for friends and family and leisure time activity.

    I believe that a good manager has a personal life. She or he makes time for friends and family and leisure time activity.

    It is written by a teacher.

    Is this OK?
    She or he makes time for friends and family and (makes time for) leisure time activity.

    Re: She or he makes time for friends and family and leisure time activity.

    It's fine. If "She or he" or "He or she" is too wordy for you, you can rephrase it:

    - I believe that a good manager has a personal life, making time for friends and family and leisure time activity.
    -
    I believe that a good manager has a personal life and will make time for friends and family and leisure time activity.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
