Talking About Grief in the Workplace
Grief is a very normal and common emotion, but it is largely misunderstood. If we normalize grief and grieving, it is possible to have more empathic and meaningful conversations about various forms of loss in the workplace. After the global experience of Covid-19, it’s a safe assumption that everyone has experienced some form of grief: the loss of a loved one or their own health, a loss of identity, time, certainty, safety, etc. Grief is exceptionally common right now, but most people are unaware, or unable to identify the emotion. On this episode, we explore grief and discuss ways to identify and discuss it.
