Topic: Put Your Oxygen Mask on First – How to Create Professional Resiliency to Serve Yourself and Your Members Better
In the event of an emergency, please put on your oxygen mask before assisting others.” Airlines repeat this every time you board for an important reason. Should cabin pressure change, and oxygen run low, YOU need to help yourself first so YOU more effectively help those around you. Apart from obvious physical effects, stress changes how we THINK. There’s a disconnect between what stress is for and what triggers it at work. Our thoughts race, we become forgetful, we lose sight of the big picture, we become worn out. It’s time to change the narrative and focus on PROFESSIONAL RESILIENCY. It’s is more important than ever in your leadership journey to take a few minutes each day to put your oxygen mask on first. It is the right thing to do for your mind, body and spirit. Take a deep breath and come learn how applying different oxygen masks can help you to be more balanced, effective, energized.
