The pandemic is not just about working from home and watching Netflix. It’s not even just about the heightened levels of stress that almost everyone is feeling. For many, the pandemic has brought varying levels of grief and trauma, and leaders are not immune.
Grief and trauma require different kinds of leadership and different kinds of self-care. Offering realistic hope looks different when people are grieving or traumatized. Minimizing the effects of grief and trauma makes things worse, not better.
In this episode, Sherri Meyer-Veen and Greg Town join us to explore the ways that many are experiencing traumatic losses even if they have not been infected with Covid-19 or faced the loss of loved ones from the disease.
