Q: Is it okay to take a two-week holiday in the summer with my family, even though I have a senior position?

James says....
What will your family remember: staying at home in the city while you’re at work or running along, say, the beaches of Prince Edward Island? My family cherishes the red earth of P.E.I. and still talks about the holiday we spent there three years ago. So, yes, do it, but manage expectations with your employer. Plan the time off and let your colleagues and superiors know well ahead of time so that they can prepare themselves. Contrary to what most people think, companies want to give you the time off to recharge your batteries.
