Weekends are time when things slow down a little. Your weekend shouldn’t be two more regular workdays. That’s a sure road to burnout. Take time to refresh yourself. Take time for something different. Take time for some of that reading you can’t find time for during the week.
Here are choice articles on hot leadership topics culled from the business schools, the business press and major consulting firms. This week there are articles on wellbeing.
“While engagement certainly has its benefits, most of us will have noticed that, when we are highly engaged we can also experience something less than positive: high levels of stress.”
