A Best of Barry: Put on your oxygen mask first

When you sit on a commercial air flight and listen to the safety instructions, what do they always end up telling you? 

In the case of de-pressurization, put your oxygen mask on first, then help others, such as a child.

I was at first surprised when I heard that years ago, but it makes sense. You have to make sure you are clear-headed first, and then you can help others.

Isn't that what leaders need to do in business? Leaders have to take time to clear their minds and sharpen their focus to truly help their team.
