Product Description

From the Publisher

A practical guide to planning and implementing your sabbaticals using concrete suggestions based on instructive and often inspiring experiences. Discusses every step in the sabbatical process--ways of negotiating for time off, planning ahead financially and psychologically, managing family and social life, what to expect during the actual sabbatical, returning to the workforce or deciding not to return at all. Features the experiences of 50 people who have taken sabbaticals.

From the Back Cover

A sabbatical may be just the change you need. More and more men and women are successfully taking an extended break from their jobs—a sabbatical. Once the exclusive preserve of academics, sabbaticals are revitalizing today’s business world. Recognizing that the decision to take a sabbatical is a major step, Lisa Rogak mixes a wealth of practical how-to facts and advice with the real-life stories of over forty professionals detailing every aspect of the process. Whether you want the time off to travel, explore other careers, discover new interests, go back to school, stay with your family, do volunteer work, or simply slow down and recharge your batteries, you’ll find information on:

  • Approaching your boss and negotiating the leave you want
  • Turning your sabbatical into a career asset
  • Determining your eligibility for the Family Medical Leave Act
  • Financing a sabbatical creatively
  • Preparing and planning to get the most out of your time off
  • Troubleshooting a sabbatical that’s not working out
  • Adjusting to the workplace once your sabbatical is over

HASH(0xa09d1c00) out of 5 stars Tired of being a slave? Quit! (For awhile at least...) Sept. 20 2004
By Terry Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
Curious about taking time off from work? This book provides great advice and inspiration on doing it. It's very similar to the book Six Months Off (see my review of that one), and you'll need to make the decision between them or decide to read both. I found that Six Months Off provides more ideas on what to do during your time off, especially terrific programs that would enhance both your life and professional resumes. Time Off From Work provides better coverage of the before and after concerns. Both do a great job of providing real-life case studies of people who've done it. In fact, the author of this book even covers one of the co-authors of Six Months Off as an example. In short, if you're stuck on the how's and why's then read this book; if you're convinced you want and can manage to take a sabbatical but don't have a clear idea of how to make the most of it, then read Six Months Off instead.
