E83: Honoring Grief in the Workplace with R. Glenn Kelly


After his son, Jonathan, died unexpectedly, R. Glenn Kelly faced grief in a myriad of places, including at work. He's since taken his loss to conferences, businesses, and keynote presentations across the country to share the importance and financial significance of honoring workplace grief. We're talking about workplace indifference regarding grief, best practices for employers and coworkers, and how to get employers to invest in care for the bereaved. Also this week, what courage REALLY looks like in grief. Hint: It has nothing to do with "being strong."
