No more sneaking out at 6pm, apologising as I go. We need to be open about commitments outside of work, says Russell-Cooke partner Pippa Garland.
At the start of 2022, I adopted a New Year’s resolution to “Leave Loudly”. The idea behind leaving loudly is to show by example that it is not just acceptable, but important, to set boundaries. By leading (or leaving) from the front, you can empower more junior members in the team to create a sustainable work-life balance, with time to enjoy both.
Why I’m leaving loudly – and why you should too is available to read on The Lawyer website.
