WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 24, 2021 – The Institute of Professional Grief Coaching is now offering a Workplace Grief Workshop, which addresses post-pandemic grief as employees return to work, as well as how to cope with the silence of grief in the workplace.
“The COVID-19 pandemic is easing up, but the grief crisis doesn’t end as we adjust to the ‘new normal.’ Grief resulting from the pandemic is devastating and complex on many levels,” said Dora Carpenter, Founder of the Institute of Professional Grief Coaching. “The spectrum of loss is huge and the long-lasting ripple effects can’t be avoided or left at the threshold when entering the office door. Grief resulting from any loss, if not addressed, not only affects the physical, emotional, social and functional well-being of employees, but also co-workers, teams and the overall organization.”
The Institute of Professional Grief Coaching works with companies to ensure staff members have a greater awareness of the unspoken impact of grief to better support and respond to bereaved employees, colleagues, clients, customers, friends, and family. Having that often avoided conversation about the misunderstood topic of grief can benefit the well-being of each of us and add a human touch of compassion and sensitivity during a much needed time.
“These issues must also be addressed for employees working virtually, as the effect may be more hidden, but still ultimately impact work performance,” Dora Carpenter said. “Ignoring the effects of grief may be detrimental to employee morale, the return to work in an office environment, and even a company’s financial bottom line.”
Workshop participants learn the myths, stigmas and judgmental perceptions surrounding grief; what to say and not to say to an employee who is grieving; acknowledging and identifying the intensity of emotions; best practices; and communication strategies to create a compassionate workplace culture. Participants will understand and support the significance and impact of loss on the workplace while maintaining productivity, company goals and customer service satisfaction.
The program is accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and awards Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units. The Workplace Grief Workshop is currently offered online and facilitated by certified grief coaches.
