As a boss on vacation: How to relax as a manager
Anyone who takes on a lot of responsibility at work should be able to relax on vacation without the phone ringing all the time.
A few days off, but your head is still in the middle of everyday office life? This can be a problem not only for employees but also for managers. You can heal better that way.
Cologne. Executives also need to be able to switch off from time to time. Anyone who has a lot of responsibility professionally and is involved in important processes should plan their vacation well in order to be able to relax properly. The Energy Textile Electro Media Products Association (BG ETEM) provides advice before, during and after your holiday.
In the days leading up to vacation, it can help to reduce the workload and, if necessary, delegate work to colleagues. From the point of view of the trade association, it is important to take care of any orders before you go on holiday and not to start on days that are stressed out by overtime.
During this time, you should also think about a replacement. BG recommends arranging a handover meeting with colleagues a few days in advance and leaving written notes. In this way you avoid queries when you are on holiday.
When you can relax, the transition from vacation to work mode can be a bumpy one. Therefore BG recommends a few buffer days. If the first day of work falls on a Monday, she recommends returning from vacation on a Friday or Saturday.
