Unplug, Recharge, and Lead Better!

Let’s face it, we’ve developed a strange badge of honor for not taking real time off. But guess what? It’s affecting our leadership skills and mental well-being.

I recently took a solid two weeks off to explore Utah’s amazing National Parks with my family – and it was a game-changer. The breathtaking landscapes were incredible, but guess what impressed me even more? Not thinking about work for a moment was as awe-inspiring as visiting Bryce Canyon!

It took me years to truly prioritize my family and myself and truly disconnect. Been there? You know the “Instagram vacation” drill – pictures of joy, sights, and family fun. Yet behind the scenes, I was shackled to emails and calls, far from present. My family hated the “work trip,” colleagues got the wrong example, and I barely recharged. This is often a hard lesson for new leaders striving to prove themselves.

I made some changes and nailed down 4 principles for my time off:

➡️Disconnect – Kudos to Samantha Singer for this trick: delete that mail app from your phone! Life-changing, and it sets the tone.

➡️Let Your Team Lead – I empower my team while I’m away and make sure I wrap up key pieces of work before I go. Turns out they got this!

➡️ Reflection- I choose a topic to do a deep dive into – something that matters to me or that I’m curious about, not necessarily work related. Or I just grab a good book!

➡️Be Present- Saying yes to my kids’ adventures and games opened my eyes. Turns out, I’d been saying no way too much.

Now, as part of my leadership coaching, I’m on a mission to help new leaders and anyone else who needs it, to put themselves and their families first. It will make you a better leader in the long-run.
