The Institute of Professional Grief Coaching Certifies Shirley Feuerstein of Cary, North Carolina as a Workplace Grief Coach
Shirley Feuerstein from Cary, North Carolina offers workshops to help businesses support grieving employees.

Shirley Feuerstein, of Focus Forward, is taking on the misunderstood topic of grief by helping organizations create compassionate and grief-informed workplace cultures.

Grief in the workplace can be difficult to deal with if the organization does not have a support system in place. Many organizations lack the information, training, and best practices needed to effectively respond when death affects their workplace.  Every individual responds to the grief caused by the death of a loved one differently and hence there cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach to help such individuals navigate through this period of intense distress.

Grief-related emotions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic are heightened and will definitely spill over into the workplace.  A professionally managed organization will not be able to allow death to affect its business activities in terms of services offered or customer expectations.  Offering the From Grief to Gratitude Workplace Grief Workshop, Shirley Feuerstein helps such organizations find the balance and flow between being compassionately supportive of the individual or affected persons and minimizing any disruption to the workplace.

Shirley Feuerstein says, “My business was impacted so heavily with the loss of my husband.  I can say first hand that if I had the assistance we are offering, I would have gratefully embraced  the help I was receiving.  It would have helped me function better on a daily basis and saved a great deal of revenue loss for the company.”

Studies indicate that grieving employees don’t feel supported at work immediately following a death and in the weeks and months afterwards.  According to Dora Carpenter, Founder of the Institute of Professional Grief Coaching, “the way an organization responds to an employee grieving a loss can have deep and long-term implications among their workforce.”

The From Grief to Gratitude Workplace Grief Workshop offers information that can help create a compassionate workplace culture, maintain an engaged workforce, boost employee morale, reduce death-related financial losses, and also work positively for the organization in terms of loyalty, productivity, and employee retention.
