Remember that feeling of the last day of school?
That tidal wave of euphoria that smacked you in the face as that back pack lightened up, and you daydreamed about all the fun shit you were about to do?
This my friends…is what Lessonly dreamed up as they kicked off Summer Break.
Sun, time with family, and spicy margaritas are Mother Nature’s equivalent to mental and emotional neosporin.
Use this Playbook to give an impromptu Summer break to your entire team. For example, Lessonly will be closing office the week of July 5th
"Summer Break" is a chance for your team to close their laptops, clear their calendars, and unplug for a week.
When your team is well-rested, they do better work, live better lives, and build better software.
Make sure to give at-least one month notice to set this up properly.
And maybe you can use our Vacations at Superhuman Playbook to discuss as a team all the fun stuff you have planned.
Communication is key, so make sure to:
- Send an office-wide email
- Ask managers to explain expectations in team meetings
- Promote Summer break with signage throughout the office
- Post it to your Slack channel
We don't need to tell you how to perform vacation.
But, we can give you some inspo and education to help you along your way.
- Just planning vacations makes you happy, thanks to anticipatory consumption.
- Studies show that vacations increase cognitive flexibility
- What's behind this effect? It turns out that creativity has 3 key ingredients: a relaxed state of mind, freedom from distractions, and an influx of dopamine — all of which we get on vacation.
