The Elephant in the Workplace: Dealing with Grief Under Pressure

Grieving doesn’t always mean death. Loss comes in many forms and affects productivity and interactions with colleagues. When the intensity of pain is not managed, that stress creates back biting, gossiping, blaming and sloppiness in the workplace.

In this presentation, the audience will learn how to move through the loss, re-connect with their purpose and understand how to maintain a healthy workplace, despite the daily pressures.

The Emotional Rollercoaster of Loss: How to Deal with a Grieving Client Without Being Overwhelmed

A client dealing with loss is highly volatile. Representatives need to manage their emotional triggers as well as their own, which over time drains them. If not addressed effectively, customer satisfaction decreases, sales are lost and brand reputation is compromised.

In this talk, the audience will learn how to identify and work through grief; how to emotionally prepare before dealing with grieving clients and their loved ones; and how to communicate with them without getting overwhelmed.

Return From Burnout: Re-Ignite Your Energy & Deliver Optimum Service to Your Clients

It’s a numbers game and with the ongoing pressure to perform, burnout causes a loss of purpose. Caring less means an increase in mistakes, a decrease in productivity and the ability to truly care for their existing clients which affects the bottom line for both the company and representative.

In this talk, the audience will learn the art of pacing, deep self-care and how to connect back to their purpose so they can deliver exceptional care to their clients again.
