Supporting each other
It is important to treat ourselves and others with compassion, as each of us will feel different levels of concern at different times.
Look: Take time to check in with yourselves and your colleagues. Look for visible cues on each other’s energy levels.
Listen: Practice active listening. Give each other time to be open and honest in how you are feeling, mentally and physically.
Acknowledge: Take the time to acknowledge and validate how we are feeling. This supports our connection with others and promotes kindness.
Respond: In times of high stress, it’s easy to let frustrations get in the way of good communication. Pause and give yourself space to respond in a kind and considerate way.
