Lyndall Farley, Sabbatical: Beyond a Break
Lyndall Farley offers a very different "key" to unlocking your creativity: a sabbatical.
She says, "When we’re stuck in a rut it feels impossible to climb out. Motivation vanishes. I've been there. In fact, https://www.gallup.com/workplace/231668/dismal-employee-engagement-sign-global-mismanagement.aspx (85% of employees globally) don’t enjoy their work. We resort to short term solutions to address the pain – a new job, a promotion, a few days off to escape – only to find that in no time, we’re back to where we started."
This endless cycle comes at a huge cost to our health, our careers, and our organizations. Left unchecked, it can spiral to complete burnout.
In today's episode, Lyndall shares her expertise in going beyond just breaks. Pause. Reflect. Recharge.
She helps people and organizations use the power of an intentional break to make the most of the sabbatical experience.
Slow down. Recharge. Design the life you want to live.
