Benefits of Sabbatical

The concept of sabbatical has its roots in ancient agriculture. Jewish people in Israel were required to take a year-long break from working the land every seven years. Modern sabbaticals are a time for an employee to take a break from work to focus on academic research, personal development, rejuvenation, writing, or simply spiritual refueling. These breaks are valuable for the individual and the organization - research shows that employees who take more than 10 days of vacation a year are 30% more likely to perform higher and receive a raise the following year. Companies including an earned sabbatical among their benefits are a rare thing, especially in America. How can we incorporate the benefits of a long, intentional break into our weekly and seasonal schedules? How can we “optimize” the time we do have off to get the most out of it? Join Work Wisdom’s Kate Coleman and Kimberlee Peifer, along with Jonathan Coleman, Co-Executive Director of ASSETS, as they discuss their personal and professional experience with intentional, focused breaks from work.

Contemplative Leadership

Contemplative leadership helps leaders "move from the illusion of me to the reality of us, from the illusion of scarcity to the reality of abundance, from powerlessness to the presence of power, from institutional self-protection to embracing the mission, from fear to trust." - Parker Palmer What is contemplative leadership? It’s incorporating practices of mindfulness into your work life: stilling yourself, listening, examining, and learning to lead with your heart more than your head. On this week’s Behaviorist podcast, join Work Wisdom’s Kedren Crosby, Sarah Colantonio, and Kimberlee Peifer in a conversation about Contemplative Leadership and its mysteries. Learn what practices will help you receive the gift of contemplation, and find out if you need to practice a specific spiritual path or religion to embark on contemplative leadership (spoiler alert: you don’t).

Contemplative Leadership

Optimism for the Win

Is optimism a crucial trait for effective leadership? What is the difference between being optimistic and being naive? Can optimists be empathetic and work alongside their pessimist nemesis? All of these questions and more will be explored on this week’s episode of The Behaviorist podcast, where Kedren is joined by Dr. Jill Koser, Director of Curriculum & Instruction at School District of the City of York, and Joe McMonagle, Vice President of ATOMIC. Listen as these three optimists discuss the benefits and potential costs of maintaining a hopeful outlook, and find out in what ways a stubborn pessimist can be an asset to your vision, not a thorn in your side.
