68: Leading through Grief


I’ve had several women reach out to me and request specifically that I speak about leading through grief, so that is exactly what you can expect from this episode.

I can’t deny that many leading ladies, myself included, have had unique challenges in the last year. Covid-19 affected many of our businesses, our wellbeing, our families, and more, and after speaking with many different leading ladies, it became really clear that so many of us experienced grief or currently are experiencing grief.

Grief is often associated with the loss of a loved one, but grief can also be mourning the loss of something in your life like the loss of your business, the loss of a friendship, or the loss of certain behaviors or hobbies that you enjoy doing.

In this episode, I am walking through the seven stages of grief, sharing some of my own experiences with this, and also giving you some advice if you are walking through grief right now.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • The seven stages of grief
  • Why people process at their own pace
  • How I handled leading through grief during the pandemic
  • The many ways leading ladies support each other
  • How to talk about your depression or anxiety
  • Not judging yourself for feeling sad
  • Giving yourself space and grace

I hope that you feel supported and equipped to acknowledge your feelings and keep moving forward as a leading lady after listening to this episode.

I am hopeful to say that I think we are moving toward the reconstruction phase of the last year. I want to be able to look back on it once it is all over and not judge myself for how I moved through leading my business. I hope you are able to do that too.

I encourage you to keep showing up for yourself, your family, your wellbeing, and your business if you are experiencing grief or if you struggle with any negative feelings such as depression or anxiety.
