One of the greatest rubs in the world for small business owners and entrepreneurs is the friction between them and their employees.
Haresh Patel's insight:

The owner believes nobody will work as hard as them and that nobody cares as much as they do (many times this is true). But what if we could create 5,000 CEOs, 5,000 owners, 5,000 people who treat the business like it is their business just as if they own it?


We at GEM thoroughly believe, Intrapreneurship is the way forward... What about you?

Stop Saying 'Workaholic' Like It's a Good Thing

Stop Saying 'Workaholic' Like It's a Good Thing | Intrapreneur | Scoop.it

Let's just make one thing clear--being called a "workaholic" is not a compliment. Taking time off is essential for being a happy, healthy, whole individual. So unless you want to be a miserable, sickly mutated chimera, you should be taking more time off. Stop working so hard. It could be killing you.

 

Stop Giving Up Vacation Time! Are You Crazy?


It's been increasingly more common for employees to sacrifice their vacation days in exchange for a nod from higher ups. Some believe that surrendering their time off demonstrates their commitment to the company, serving as a testament to their work ethic and, hopefully, resulting in job security.

 


Via The Learning Factor
Haresh Patel's insight:

If American feels, they are work-alcoholic then what about Indian IT Crowd? I always envy my German friend who always makes most out his every extended weekend - vacationing round the year. 

 

Way to go....

The Learning Factor's curator insight, July 24, 2014 7:57 PM

Extended time off is key for a happy, productive life. So why isn't it more common?

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, July 26, 2014 12:46 PM

The lack of vacation Americans take can't be emphasized enough. Being a workaholic is unhealthy. The way most of us work, it takes at least one week of vacation to unwind.
