This week officially kicks off the holiday season. For most of us the holidays are a busy time both personally and professionally. The next six weeks are full of distractions, albeit some good ones. This past weekend as I started making some of our holiday plans I remembered two concepts that I blogged about earlier this year: Connecting and Disconnecting.
The holidays are a great time to do both. Use your time off to disconnect from the work and stress that goes along with being a business professional. Then use that time to reconnect with family and friends. Good leaders understand the value of this concept. Great leaders put it in practice and encourage their people to do the same.
