Grieving & Transitions in Companies

How to best support employees in the changes, upheavals, frustrations and separations that dot the corporate life?

At work we almost continuously have to face changes such as : “How shall I do without this colleague and friend who changed business and whom I so much appreciated? ” or: ” I so much relied on this promotion that I have not received, how do I motivate myself? ” or when a whole team feels insecure because the organization has been taken over: ” What if my department is integrated in another one, what will become of me? ” or when a person is confronted with his own limitations: “I must admit I’m not the best in the sale.” In short, the workplace is also a place of mourning.

When this suffering that accompanies grieving is not recognized, it can form cysts, lead to depression, to serious illnesses.

A good manager must be able to accompany his team in this painful but necessary process of renunciation. It should not be afraid of grieving, that word so hard to pronounce in our society. Recognition of the suffering of others, and his, is the sine qua non condition to keep pace with its employees, trade-union representatives, to live mutual esteem and mutual understanding in these relationships. A leader should therefore be familiar with the different stages of grief that are denial, anger, blame, before they approach the negotiation phase and reconstruction.

Too many social conflicts degenerate because of this lack of knowledge of the other, fear and denial of mourning.

This workshop will give you tools to help you better manage your business in case it is turning difficult. Recognize the grieving process, admit it and accompany it, through work on oneself, which is essential to a harmonious and professional life. You will discover the reknowed ‘Evolution Loops’, the model created by Sylviane Cannio and Viviane Launer and that appears in their book ‘Coaching Excellence’.

We are at your disposal to customize this workshop according to your organization’s needs and culture.
