Unveiling the Life-Changing Secrets of a CEO Radical Sabbatical!

In this ‘Working Better Now’ series I have a chat with Germaine Baugh, the CEO of the Urban League of Broward County. In this eye-opening conversation, Germaine reveals the incredible impact of her 30-day sabbatical, uncovering how it empowered her team and led to some game-changing insights. We explore the unexpected outcomes that completely transformed her own leadership journey.

Key Takeaway:

Germaine’s radical sabbatical really highlights the important connection between personal well-being and effective leadership. Through strategic decision-making, involving key stakeholders, we gained some valuable insights to help diversify revenue, leverage assets, and strengthen our core operations.

One significant lesson we learned is the importance of shifting towards a leadership culture that shares power and promotes accountability and growth. Instead of constantly rushing forward, we need to embrace intentional breaks for reflection, just like Germaine did. It’s absolutely vital for our business to prioritize well-being and strategic thinking if we want to achieve sustained success. We should encourage practices that foster personal growth, drive innovation, and have a long-term impact.
