Working Conversations Episode 48:
What We Got Right in the Workplace in 2021
I see it everywhere in the headlines.
Workcation is a work arrangement where you do the work-from-home thing in a different geographic location.
Imagine waking up, taking your yoga class by the pool, maybe a quick swim after yoga, then preparing for the workday. Sit under an umbrella, poolside, getting work done, logging into meetings, and enjoying different (and probably tropical) scenery. The workday flies by and before you know it, you are deciding between the tuna and avocado poke bowl or the shrimp with mango salsa for dinner.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
But like any work arrangement, it might be great for us or against us.
After a long duration of stay-at-home orders, people want to travel even if it means still working while also satisfying their wanderlust. For some it can be incredibly successful and for some, it could backfire — and they might feel incredibly dissatisfied and disappointed.
There’s definitely some upside, but it’s not right for everyone.
In this episode, I’m here with you to dig into the nitty-gritty of the workcation idea and help you decide if it’s a good fit for you.
So, listen here or wherever you listen to podcasts. I see you, my friend, sipping on a frozen mango margarita under a palm tree, gazing at the sunset. I see you refreshed, relaxed, and ready for whatever is next.
