Holidays should be for kicking back, relaxing, and, perhaps most crucially, turning off your work notifications. But when you’re a manager, it’s not always easy to switch off from your day job. Here are seven tips to help you prepare for your paid time off (PTO) so you can enjoy a well-earned and stress-free vacation. 1. Plan Ahead The sooner you start planning ahead for your PTO, the greater the chances are you’ll be able to enjoy a worry-free holiday. Make a list of urgent tasks that must be completed before you go away, and decide what can wait until you get back. Start delegating these responsibilities to your team members ahead of time so they can manage their workloads accordingly. If you know you’ve taken care of the most time-sensitive jobs on your to-do list, you won’t spend your PTO visualizing your inbox filling up with angry or confused messages. 2. Leave Someone In Charge Your team members should be more than capable of performing their usual roles while you’re away. But it’s worth giving someone you trust the authority to delegate tasks and make decisions on your behalf. You don’t want progression on key projects to be halted simply because your team can’t agree on the right way forward.
