Our Vision and Mission
is to have every manager understand the need for training and compassion during difficult times of grief and loss.
Productivity and Understanding
The serious impact of your employees’ grief on your company is not a question of “if” grief will occur; it is a question of “when”. And when your employees experience grief it can become a major challenge to your bottom line and for your managers to maintain morale and productivity. It is essential for you to have a pro-active Trauma Plan and to provide training for your managers to handle trauma, grief, and crisis issues.
We provide the tools you need to help your managers and your employees cope and maintain productivity.

For example, assistance writing the eulogy can help a manager who may be unsure how to express feelings for the team or company; the angel teddy bears may be very appropriate for a team member who has lost a child; and The Road Ahead book is appropriate for an individual who has lost a spouse or partner. If you have any questions or would like some guidance on what is appropriate in a business setting, telephone or email today.
Book - THE ROAD AHEAD – AFTER THE FUNERAL
The book offers practical advice for rebuilding a life after the loss of a spouse or partner. While there are many books filled with information describing grief and how to manage it, there is little information about what to expect, how to survive and make it through everyday life on your own – often for the first time.
