It is hard to believe that this favorite American holiday, celebrating fireworks and cookouts with family and friends, is upon us already. Though I don’t have any big plans I am looking forward to a chance to unplug over the three-day weekend. As burnout is being cited as one of the top challenges for employees in the midst of the Covid pandemic, we are all trying to find time to recharge.

In attempt to lead by example, I made the time to put the boat in the water at the family cottage – the first time in three years! My 80-year old mother and 23-year old daughter were excellent helpers. We plan to take advantage of the opportunities to enjoy our beautiful state even more this year.

We all know that this crisis is like no other and, as a result, there are no shortage of pressures; concerns about our family and friends health, the added stress of teaching children or working with spouses at home, the economic uncertainty, the social isolation and restrictions, and the lack of certainty as to when this will eventually end. I wish I could wave a magic wand and ease the pressures; but that’s not possible. What I can do is encourage our team, colleagues and clients to proactively work to minimize burnout. Arrange vacations, even if they are on a less grand scale than what you had originally planned. Take walks. Get into an exercise regimen. Do what you can to give your mind a rest and change your routine.  We know that this isn’t easy but we are all in this together!

I wish you and your loved ones a very happy July 4th and may God continue to bless and look over this great country!

We have all heard the phrase, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” This aptly applies to today’s situation and, no, I am not talking about our beloved Detroit Lions! What I am referring to is the alarming lack of qualified employees. I am finding that this relates to just about everyone, everywhere.
