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 about self-care during the pandemic, the future of work, wellbeing and performance, health insurance “sludge,” empowerment and healthcare, and the great digital acceleration.
