In this episode, Janet and Matt explore the opportunity for leaders in business to take time away from their roles for their physical and mental wellbeing.

Speaking to Matthew Pickthall, a senior manager at Tesco, they explore the different lessons and experiences which he encountered during his sabbatical. With less time being spent at work, Matthew was able to invest more time and energy on his family and mental health (as well as gaining a diploma in wine!).

Touching upon the different ways he prepared for his year out, Matthew talks through the planning stages of taking a sabbatical. He recounts the different conversations he had with his managers and finding a new member of staff to take on his role within the company.

Whilst taking a sabbatical can have positive effects on your own personal growth, Janet and Matt also explore how it paves the way for succession within your business. Whilst taking leave may seem daunting, it can also give your employees the opportunity to develop through taking on new responsibilities.

Also, special guest, Dave, speaks about sailing around the world, the importance of taking time off to prevent burnout and investing in yourself outside of work.
