Sabbaticals are strategic job pauses that are opportunities for intentional reflection, professional development, personal growth, renewed passion, and transformation. The most meaningful sabbaticals are planned ones — with specific goals and objectives designed to benefit both the individual and his/her company. yourSABBATICAL has teamed up with Colorado-based Andavo Meetings & Incentives to offer executive sabbatical packages that center around the following four transformational themes:
Exploratory Series: Core Identity & Actualization
The transformation to a truly authentic, resonant leader begins when an individual disengages and dis-identifies to find a new sense of value, worth and energy. The quality and sustainability of any organization rests on the intellectual and emotional connection between its leaders and its key stakeholders.
Innovation Series: Cultural Affinity & Global Diversity
Perhaps the single most important ingredient in today’s economy, innovation is now recognized as a pivotal management tool for transforming and organization’s culture. Building an environment fully engaged in positive change and rich in creativity and renewal requires creating a culture with 360 degrees of innovation.
Volunteerism Series: Return to Others
With the initiative of corporate social responsibility maturing worldwide, leading companies are promoting volunteerism. While many establish their own programs based on values or interest, individuals on sabbatical in any organization can align personal sabbatical goals of giving back to others with enhancing their skills and providing visibility for their company.
Challenge Series: Courage and Risk Taking
Great leaders stand up for what they believe in and blaze trails. They make mistakes, learn from them, and continue to pursue their vision until it becomes a reality. When high-ranking executives, middle managers, and entrepreneurs find the courage to take action at times when all others hesitate, the organization’s culture can be transformed.
