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
