AT OUR CORE, WE BELIEVE IN...
Sometimes, we need a reminder that everyone is going to die. When we encourage conversations and dialogues around death and bereavement, we are better prepared to navigate our thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
Life and death are two sides of the same coin. When we remove the taboo around discussing death we learn how to better respond to grief and gain the skills we need to be compassionate communicators.
There are better ways to navigate death, grief, and bereavement. With the right tools and skills to better navigate grief and bereavement, we're able to revolutionize work cultures to make them suitable for all workers.
WHY CORPORATE GRIEF TRAINING?
There is an overwhelming amount of grief being felt within the world right now. As a result of deaths, lockdowns, and stolen moments with loved ones, this grief is being felt within teams and organizations across the country.
Grief is not something that can be wished away. It needs to be handled with care and compassion. People leaders need support and insights on how to better navigate all this grief that's built up and is living within their workplaces. They need the skills to have a human-first approach with their team – to handle challenging conversations. They need to lead with compassion to create a caring work environment that prioritizes an individual's needs.
Companies immensely benefit when they lead with a grief-literate mindset. This approach leads to the creation of a more caring and compassionate workplace, which has shown to increase employee retention while increasing the recruitment of top talent.
Corporate grief training provides skills and resources to better navigate conversations around death, as well as discussions about retirement, promotions, a child's graduations, and all the other areas of life where grief exists.

WHY 1:1 GRIEF COACHING?
Life transitions can be challenging to navigate, particularly the new realities that follow.

WHY HOST A
Mourning Lattes focus on fostering a space that encourages discussion around topics that are often swept aside. The goal of each Good Mourning is to help eliminate the fear and stigma of talking about death, to share past experiences and personal goals for end-of-life care, and to better navigate any challenges some may have with discussing death.
Mourning Lattes are hosted in the late mornings or early afternoons, with warm beverages and tasty snacks nearby. Starter questions will be provided to the group to encourage and facilitate dialogue. Following these discussions, participants often feel relaxed and develop a newfound sense of understanding and appreciation of our mortality.
We encourage you to consider this option for your organization's fundraiser, or if you're looking to more deeply connect with your friends and build trust among colleagues.
