You won't find Jared Heyman in the offices of Infosurv, the company he founded, because he's spending a year kite-surfing and lounging on far-flung beaches. Heyman used to be a hands-on boss, but he decided to leave the company in the hands of his senior managers and check in occasionally by phone and e-mail. "The overall vibe is more relaxed," says marketing chief Kyle Burnam. "It's like when you were in high school and your parents went away. You still got stuff done, but it gave you a sense of freedom."
Could your employees cope if you took a yearlong vacation?
