I wrote an article about treating high performers on our team better, not burning people out, and building stronger teams instead of creating heroic martyrs.

Taking real, fully disconnected time off is good for your health and for your team. But you have to ACTUALLY disconnect to get the benefits.

I wrote a new post: Checking Slack and email during vacation is bad for you AND your team. Please stop doing it.
