    How to Talk to Your Boss About Your Grief

    How to Talk to Your Boss About Your Grief

    What do you say to your boss when you are dealing with a loss in your personal life?

    The conversation is not an easy one, but it is one that MUST take place. Open lines of communication make it easier on you, your manager and those working on you.

    So who do you need to talk to first and how do you start this conversation?

    And what exactly should you say? Leadership coach Jill Hunter has some great advice to share. 

    ######

    Jill Hunter, RPh, MBA, spent her first 25 years working as a pharmacist in various healthcare settings where top producers were promoted to management. Managers focused on the numbers creating a culture where everyone feared for their job. When Jill had the opportunity to be a Director of Pharmacy she led her team with empathy, not numbers and it worked! Now Jill coaches professionals how to do the same, eliminating fear management from businesses. Her mission is to make every company a place where everyone wants to come to work every day. People thrive when they feel appreciated, valued and supported.

    She speaks to organizations and corporations on leadership and career development. In her coaching business she helps leaders connect on a deeper level with their teams. She also helps people discover new directions for their careers by unleashing their hidden talents, then dialing in the right mix of strengths and potential.

    She has a Facebook group to bring like-minded leaders together www.facebook.com/groups/LeadwithEmpathy/

    How to Become Resilient After Loss

    How to Become Resilient After Loss

    "You are so strong." 

    "I could never survive what you have."

    Those are just a few of the many phrases grievers have heard as they travel their path from grief to healing. But that simply isn't true. Resiliency isn't something you have, it is something that is built and Janet Fanaki has not only studied it, she has lived it and is teaching her children to build theirs as well.

    Janet is the creator and host of the RESILIENT PEOPLE podcast.

    Since 2018 she has been blogging and recording interviews with people from around the world who are admired for their resilience.

    She calls herself a Resilience Explorer.

    A former public relations specialist, Janet and family were shocked in 2016 when her husband Adam was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. He was 47 years old and in February 2020 succumbed to the disease.

    Over the three and a half years of Adam’s illness, Janet did a lot of people watching in the appointment waiting rooms - wondering how others cope with major life challenges? She share's some of those observances and lessons with us in this episode.

    Nurses and Grief

    Nurses and Grief

    Nurses and other medical professionals deal with death, dying and grieving as a part of their profession. For those working in Hospice, this is true every day they show up for work. So one might think they "KNOW" how handle it better than most. You might want to re-think that. Helen Bauer, Founder and co-host of the Heart of Hospice Podcast has been a Nurse, a consultant, and a griever and she says a lot of people in the profession take a "Do as I say, not as I do" approach, which can lead to burn out.

    We had quite a comprehensive and interesting conversation. 

    I hope you will find it to be that as well.

    #####

    Helen Bauer has worked in nursing for over 30 years, specializing in hospice and end of life care for the past 10 years. She is a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Registered Nurse with a background in compliance and consulting.  As co-owner of The Heart of Hospice, she provides end of life education and consulting services for both hospice providers and consumers.  Helen’s passion for quality end of life care can be heard on The Heart of Hospice podcast as she leads discussions on hospice philosophy, how to get the most from your hospice experience, and advance care planning.

    How to Keep Your Mind from Spiraling Out of Control

    How to Keep Your Mind from Spiraling Out of Control

    One of the most challenging things to do when faced with a death, health scare, or trauma is to keep your mind from getting the best of you. 

    It is something that can compound your stress and zap your energy. 

    So how do you reel it in? 

    I have been using a special visualization tool that has been helping me through an extremely stressful time in my life. And it seems to be working. People who know me, say they noticed a huge difference in me in less than 24 hours. 

    So I thought I would share this tool with you too.

    Check it out in this Inspirationista Insight edition of the Graduating Grief Podcast
