Speaking for corporate organisations
So you are a big for profit company, you may wonder what Molly Carlile – Deathtalker can offer you and why you would need her to talk to your leadership team or your staff?
Here’s a few questions that might help you see where Molly can help.
- Have you ever had a staff member die?
- Have you ever had a staff member witness a traumatic event that has impacted on their performance?
- Have any of your leadership team had a relative with a terminal illness?
I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
You may well say “We have an Employee Assistance Scheme (EAP) that deals with all that!” That’s great but does your EAP provide proactive assistance for dealing with death, grief and loss in your workplace?
If you said NO……….here’s where Molly can help.
Organisations are organic entities. They move, change, grow and evolve. People come and go. Leaders retire and new leaders emerge.
How well are your established and emerging leaders prepared for the inevitability of death and grief and the impact of these normal life occurrences in your workplace? What systems do you have in place to support employees when they return to work after the death of someone they love? How well is your team prepared for supporting a grieving colleague?
Death has a huge impact on an organisation. It not only impacts on the grieving person but on all of those around them. People are scared to say the wrong thing….so they say nothing, they carry on as normal. This leaves the grieving person feeling isolated, alienated and alone in their suffering.
You may say “it’s not our job!”. I beg to differ. The health and well being of your staff IS your responsibility and providing a safe and nurturing work environment is everyone’s business…..core business in fact.

Why would you want your organisation to be compassionate?
Have you ever had a staff member whose partner, child or other family member died? If you said NO...it's probably not because it hasn't happened, but because you didn't KNOW!
How did your organisation respond to the death? "Not your job?" WRONG!
Did you know that staff who are living with a terminal illness or grieving the death of someone close, need support from their employer in order to remain productive, to feel valued in their organisation and to stay working?
The cost to organisations who don't address death, serious illness and grief in their workplaces in human, financial and strategic terms has been extensively documented.
Organisations that embrace a compassionate workplace approach retain their staff and build their business.
