The last thing you want is to be having an argument with a family member whilst on a difficult operation. How can we find the balance between our family and professional life?
In today’s episode we are joined by the #BodyguardWithaSmile Jermaine Flythe, founder of G3A Protection to look under the hood of today’s protector and offer advice on one of the most sensitive and personal challenges whilst on the job.
Questions we’re exploring include:
- How can an operator handle being taken away from family for extended periods at short notice?
- How can a protector balance being approachable without giving the impression that they are a ‘friend’?
- In what way can we help spouses or children adjust?
- Does the family dynamic compound the internalization of stress?
- Can a ‘positive outlook’ be trained for?
