Insights - An Employee Engagement Show

Jul 21, 2020

If you’ve traveled on any airline, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the monotonous but occasionally entertaining monologues about safety procedures. You know, exits located in the front and back of the plane, there’s a flotation device under your seat, case of an emergency...“Put on your own oxygen mask before assisting those around you.”

Hopefully, you’ve never been in this position but the reasoning behind this policy also applies outside of an airplane. Clearly you can’t help someone else if you’re incapacitated and without oxygen.

In this week’s bite-size, we are asking leaders to put their oxygen mask on first and learning how they can encourage self-care for themselves and their teams. Sharing their thoughts are Hakemia Jackson, a cultural strategist, executive coach, and partner with Bravely, Jeff Smith, a psychologist and the Director of 15 Five's Best Self Academy, and Santiago Jaramillo, CEO of Emplify.
