Leadership- you must talk the walk. There are big benefits to structured breaks. Employees refresh and recharge, they're more creative, focussed & engaged.
Breaks are healthy. It is actually on breaks from "real work" that many breakthroughs happen. Students benefit from these when done well.
As a leader, what do you do to balance work and rest breaks, and how do you support your employees to do the same?
With all of the documentation out there about the benefits of downtime, many senior leaders don't change any of their practices. We know that taking breaks is good for business; yet we still resist. Why?
Peter McKelvie offers us this challenge: "Take a risk and encourage some down time. See what happens. Take a bit for yourself while you’re at it". Model to your team that taking breaks are not only acceptable; but desirable.
