Is it your job as the person in charge to pay attention to your employees’ resilience and encourage them to break away from the “always-on” mindset? Absolutely!  All companies would like it if their employees would leave their personal life at home, but the reality is that it doesn’t happen. The things that go on away from work will affect how people react to the job. If you want your company to be successful, you must focus on their mental and emotional stamina as well as your own.

Stress is on its way – more than ever right now. It is ‘The Holidays’. People handle these times in different ways. The most important action to take is to pay attention to your family, your employees and yourself.

Know this – personal development will encourage everybody on your team to be more engaging and produce higher levels of service. If you want your business to succeed, you must encourage people to take a break from their jobs, so they’ll want to come back and do their jobs.

This is the time for a great break. If you need to plan your own break, try this and give a copy to your team members as well.
