TPA Podcast #2 – Covid-19 and Leading Through Loss

Episode Info


We are living in truly unprecedented times. At time of recording, there have been close to 400,000 positive cases of Covid-19 recorded globally, with more than 16,000 confirmed deaths.


Business leaders now face stark decisions on the future of their people and organisations. Looking after your people has never been more important, as many employees will be anxious not only about their own health, but that of their colleagues, families and friends.


TPA’s Julie Stokes OBE is an expert in bereavement, having started her career as a psychologist in palliative care. She then founded Winston’s Wish, the UK’s leading child bereavement charity. Julie joins us to describe how leaders can manage this difficult time and help employees deal with loss.
