Reflections from a Chief Executive Officer
Governors State University Trustee Angela Hickey, CEO of law firm Levenfeld Pearlstein, recently returned from a first-time, six-week sabbatical that took her across Europe, from the Aegean Sea off the island of Crete to the Portuguese coast.
During her respite, Hickey re-discovered her passions, renewed her spirit, and returned with clarity. She reflects on her experience in a recent
LinkedIn post and invites other professionals to unplug and reconnect with their own inspirations and to encourage their employees to do the same.
“By sharing this experience, I invite my peers to consider the impact of a sabbatical on recruiting, retention, innovation, and succession planning— some of the largest challenges facing law firms.”
