How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

"Lead Authentically" is one of Remitly's values, and one of mine! An example of staying accessible through authenticity is instigating and participating in weekly "self care" and "learning" checkins at standups. It's my hope that admitting imperfection makes it easier for my reports to come to me if they have any kind of problem.
