Grief

English version

Grief & Sorrow

GRIEF
tabu, complex, important

There are topics we don’t like to talk about. Death, grief, the complexities involved, we push far away. Do they and yet clearly hinder the ultimate goals: Happiness and success.

Unprocessed grief can lead to psychological late effects.

Our psyche is a delicate web that wants to be cared for and attended to. No matter how grief comes into life. Suddenly. With notice. Each time it is a shock with downstream processing of feelings that often surprise and overwhelm us. Grief can paralyze and change our being. Pushing away or ignoring grief often leads to burn-out or depression years later due to an unprocessed grief process.

Taking part in deep feelings is uncomfortable…

for mourners as well as for friends, colleagues or managers.
How do I meet people who are grieving?
When is it “good again”?
Velvet gloves or ignoring?
Projecting your own process onto the person can lead to misunderstandings.

Worth it in the long run,

not to place mourners in a dark taboo corner, but to accept them and provide care.
They remain part of the team, don’t drop out for weeks at a time, and continue to contribute to the company’s success.

Grieving according to needs

How does grief processing fit into professional life?
Mourners must continue to function; perform tasks for the team and for their own family.
There are hardly any offers or they do not fit in time and place with the work and family routines.
It is challenging enough to reconcile family and career. Both should be compatible.
How does mourning fit in?

You can’t prepare for a death – but you can for the psychological consequences.
Expecto Godi is the first needs-oriented bereavement support program in which mourners are supported whenever they need assistance, so that they can continue to reconcile work, family and everyday life and actively shape them.

Accompanying. Supportive. Compassionate.

Integrate Expecto Godi into your company health management system and ensure the long-term mental health of your employees in the event of bereavement. In other European countries, such as the Netherlands, bereavement support is well established. The costs incurred are covered by employers and health insurance companies.

GRIEF = PRIVATE AFFAIR?

As soon as an employee has to deal with a private crisis or a death, this inevitably has an impact on behavior within the team, work performance and occupational safety.
