Functioning At Work After A Personal Tragedy

Experiencing a personal tragedy is incredibly hard.  

And it’s challenging to deal with while still having to be a leader at work. 

People are depending on you, but you still dealing with personal pain. 

You want to grieve but you also want to be available for everybody at work. 

It’s a difficult challenge that many of us never find a way to balance. 

Sometimes we become more focused on work that dealing with our tragedies. 

This can cost us in our personal lives. 

Sometimes we do the complete opposite and drop everything to only focus on our personal life. 

Over time, this will lead people to believe we are not committed to work. 

So, what do you do when personal issues can potentially impact your work? 

Take care of you first. 

Before you worry about your job, take care of yourself. 

You’re only as good as you are good to yourself. 

Don’t drive yourself into craziness because you’re dealing with this stress. 

Take the time you need to deal with your personal tragedy. 

This is why you are given bereavement leave. 

If you don’t have bereavement leave, shame on your place of work. 

You shouldn’t want to work for any organization that makes you feel bad for taking time to take care of yourself. 

They’re showing you that they don’t care about you. 

No one deserves to work for a leader that doesn’t care about them. 

So, focus on yourself

Give yourself a chance to get yourself together and to grieve. 

It’s the most important thing you can do.

There is a war on talent, and talent has won the war.

If you want to keep talented people, you’ve got to have great leadership.

Without great leadership, talent will leave you to work for your competitor.

This is creating problems for organizations because they don’t have good training programs for leaders that build diverse, high performing teams in a world class workplace culture.

Whether you do it online or offline, it is paramount to find a program that will help your leaders get better.

What to Look for in Your Next Executive Role

You finally realize that it’s time for you to move on to a job where your talents are appreciated.

Now, you’re evaluating what you should be looking for in your next executive role.

You’ve been through the fire before and you know how hard it is to work in an organization with a leader that doesn’t value your skills and a team that doesn’t respect your expertise.

This doesn’t allow you to help the people you came to help; the patients and the frontline members that look up to you.

You need to be in an environment that nurtures you but there is a chance you can jump out of this frying pan and into one that’s worse.

You need to slow down and really think about what environment you want to be in and what it takes to be successful as a leader.
