As the Atlantic reports, Americans on average accrue 18 vacation days per year and only use 16, whereas our French counterparts use up to twice as much. Based on these statistics,Europeans seem to understand the value of taking a break and how productive it can be more than Americans. So, instead of sitting on a mountain of vacation time, use it. Take a trip somewhere you've always wanted to visit and enjoy the experience of disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of your daily life. Enough cannot be said about how effective a break can be in helping you reconnect with your family and loved ones and come back to work refreshed and rejuvenated.
Working for Diplomats is often more fun and social than working for other leaders (especially the Pragmatists). Diplomats put less emphasis on challenging their employees than they do putting their people in positions to succeed and leverage their strengths. Diplomats work to avoid having people feel uncomfortable or anxious. Traditional measures of employee satisfaction are often very high for Diplomats. For the appropriate people, it’s a great situation.
Famous Diplomats include Mohandas Gandhi and Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook).

Thanks to Bluegreen Vacations, I have over 17 years experience as an HR professional in a corporate setting. My goals currently center around Inspirational Leadership, developing greater depth in Human Resource Development, adult learning and organizational performance improvement. Strongly committed to the implications of the service-profit chain and realizing value through a work environment populated with satisfied, loyal and productive associates. I believe that truly vital organizations have the potential for untapped levels of performance that capture a balance of the two ultimate outcomes of any large-scale human collaboration (i.e., organizational effectiveness and organizational health). Further, I believe that organizational health enables organizational effectiveness but not vice versa. Organizational Health is then an outcome or the collective destiny for any organization that is up to the creation of a habitat for happiness!
