    218 Martha Rouleau - Grief & Grieving

    If you’ve lived for any length of time, you have experienced grief. It’s a universal emotion caused by losing someone or some thing you’ve loved or cared about. Whether it’s the loss of a job, the death of a family member, or loss of a pet, grief and grieving can be intense - strong enough to adversely affect your work and life. Martha Rouleau is an adjunct lecturer and mindfulness/wellness professional at William & Mary. She works at the university’s McLeod Tyler Wellness Center. She recently delivered a presentation on grief and the brain to William & Mary faculty and staff. Afterwards, she joined us to talk about grief and grieving; what they are, and how to approach them as a person, colleague, and leader.

Business and more

This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, back by research, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.
