In this episode of the Safeti Podcast, we share the mic for the second time with workplace mental health specialist Tom Oxley, of Bamboo Mental Health. Tom wanted to have a chat about his experiences to date during this unprecedented global COVID 19 pandemic.
Just some of the stuff we cover in this podcast:
- Our experiences so far during the global pandemic
- The importance of focusing on what you can control
- Why genuine listening is fundamental to leading in a crisis
- Paying attention to what is happening right now – is it necessary?
- The change curve – where we are and where we are going
- How to manage isolation and loneliness
- Being part of your own recovery
Thanks again to Tom for joining us (again!) on the Safeti Podcast to share his wisdom!
