Process Assessments

Once we understand what grief is and provided our teams with some grief language templates, we need to look at our current process and ensure that we are communicating clearly when an employee announces bereavement leave.  This communication and process assessment is done internally and supported by one of our workplace consultants.

Integral to making cultural changes is communication.  Once the process is articulated out clearly..what do we say?  We provide you with a list of questions you can ask each level of the organization and templates in which you can outline the answers and concerns for the bereaved, their leader and their team.


Coaching & Support

Your Community is here to support you through this.  You have access to one on one coaching, a private community of leaders and access to other personalized resources for your leaders and teams should they need one on one support
