Just to be sure you are getting this thread of tips….As a leader, your professional behavior serves as the model and unspoken expectation for how all those working beneath you should behave. If you are a leader who seldom takes a lunch break, sick day, or uses your vacation, your employees will experience stress—perhaps subconsciously—when they take leave or go out to lunch. The problem is that as humans we need time away from work. Employees who take time away from work maintain a stronger sense of self, experience greater physical and mental well-being, and are more engaged, committed employees because they have a sense that working is a choice and not a round the clock obligation. Happily, as more and more working parents prioritize ample time with family, spent away from work, many businesses are incorporating flex time and teleworking as well as offering more generous benefits packages that give employees more time off to live their lives. As a leader, it is your duty to your employees to set an example of health and balance by taking time away from work to spend with family, taking a vacation, and simply living life.
