Are you at a firm with European offices? Without a doubt, the folks across the pond do vacation time, a.k.a. “holiday,” the right way. Not once have I had unused vacation time during any year of my career. I’ve never understood people who don’t use all of their vacation time. Most of us are pounding it hard during our work time and we need that decompression time, even if it’s just staying home to work in the yard. If you don’t buy into that concept, maybe you need to speak with Rita Keller. Or a psychiatrist. Or Bozo the Clown (I have no idea what this means…maybe I need a vacation).
There are sound business reasons why leaders should take vacation time. Rita Keller’s list sums it up perfectly. To see that list, click on the photo of Rita below.
I wrote this yesterday; I’m on vacation today and Friday. Cheers!
