I was reminded (again) this week on the importance of taking time to enjoy time away from the office. If you review recently published statistics, Americans take very little time off from work as compared to most, if not all countries. Couple that fact with increasing family pressures, impacts of globalized economical turmoil and general poor diet/exercise routines…that spells trouble.

Why does this matter and how does this impact us as leaders?

Simply put, if we do not take the time to recognize our own needs to decompress – how can we hope to have insight into our respective teams? Picking up cues to interpersonal distress, overwork and general burn-out is critical for organizations that hope to have high performing teams, great morale and consistently contribute to the bottom line.

Take your time off, things will go on with out you…

..make wise choices.
