What is a mini-sabbatical?
A sabbatical (from Hebrew: shabbat (שבת) (i.e., Sabbath), in Latin: sabbaticus, in Greek: sabbatikos (σαββατικός), literally a "ceasing") is a rest from work, or a break. People traditionally take a sabbatical to eg. fulfill a goal, build skills, revitalize or do research. Step out, travel the world and accomplish your goals; the key is to move, get away, renew, refresh. Sabbaticals can be beneficial to both employees and employers. Getting away is essential for creative and new thinking, can help you develop talents and skills, or even prevent from burnout.
Mini-sabbaticals are shorter in length but also aim for rest, refresh & refocus.
