Key Principle of a Leader #23: Tired workers are poor performers. Give them some days off.

Progress won’t be made if the job is in the hands of a tired worker, and they’re also a security risk to the company. Similarly to a fatigued driver, a tired worker can commit simple lapses or cause significant damage for a company.
It’s a manager’s duty to notice a tired employee and take action. Sending an employee on compulsory leave is better than contending with later consequences. In addition, a rested employee is more highly motivated and more pleasant to work with for co-workers.
