    How to Take Time Off

    How to Take Time Off

    Vacation days are one of the most finite resources we possess as non-retired humans. Most of us with "normal" 9-5 jobs tend to get between 10 and 25 days per year with little flexibility beyond that - regardless of salary. As our careers progress, income tends to rise, and business tends to increase along with it - leaving the potential for having more than enough money but struggling to find the time to recharge, regroup, and reconnect with the humans most important around us.
    In this episode, we discuss how to think differently about vacations, effective strategies for taking vacations, and how overall health and wellbeing come into play.

    Leading Through the Great Resignation

    Leading Through the Great Resignation

    In today's episode we talk about the https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/worklab/work-trend-index/hybrid-work (40% of workers) that are planning on leaving their job over the next 12 months and what we can do about it as leaders within our organization.
    Episode at a Glance:
    NPR coined the term Great Resignation as a way to label the abnormally high number of people planning on leaving their jobs as we begin to exit the worst of the pandemic.
    The decision to leave is largely driven by a desire for remote work flexibility and potentially a drive to take control over part of their life after navigating a crisis that gives a fresh start.
    Organizations are poised to lose their best and brightest in this time period as the job market has heavily skewed towards job seekers.
    What are actions we can take today to mitigate impact within our own organizations, or is it too late?
