|People do not grieve in any set order, and they are not linear. We may experience all or some. Ironically, or not, many of the same symptoms of “crisis fatigue” are the same as grief: crying, headaches, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, fatigue, stress as well as questioning life purpose, isolation, and questioning spiritual beliefs.
We believe it is super important now,
that you as leaders are paying extraordinary attention
to your employees and teams!
For their mental health and sense of wellbeing,
your peace of mind, and your organization’s vitality.
