385 Sustainable Self Care for Leaders

Self-care isn’t selfish, in fact it’s essential to ensure we have the emotional and physical bandwidth to help others. That’s just one of the reasons why airline pre-flight safety instructions tell us to put our own oxygen masks on first before aiding children or others. We need to secure our own ability to breathe before helping others amidst troublesome turbulence. Beyond the pre-flight instructions, this familiar metaphor illuminates the need for work/life balance. But how do we secure our oxygen or balance our lives amidst competing pandemics which have almost without detection merged our professional and personal selves? As the world prepares to "open up," let us take this opportunity to establish a sustainable “new normal” that centers self-care as pivotal to effective leadership. In this interactive class, we will formulate a sustainable plan for regular self-care that manages stress, prevents burnout, and creates productive and energized teams and organizations.
