6th of December – Develop your own self-reflection and awareness
When a crisis strikes the initial reaction is to stabilise the threat and help establish the response, putting the right people into the critical roles. At the same time, it is important to attend to yourself and to accept and acknowledge the emotions that you may be feeling. Acompassionate leader will allow these to be felt and spoken about. Ask yourself what do I enjoy doing that helps me to manage my feelings? And how much time do I spend satisfying those needs right now?
