Helping Yourself and Others Through Adversity with Marcia Donziger

It doesn’t matter how well you’re working your plan and hitting your goals if something unexpected happens that seriously threatens your physical or mental health.

And it often does, especially given the stress that’s associated with executive roles. 

Even if you have not been personally impacted by some kind of serious illness or disease, you probably know people in your organization who have been.

The experience can be devasting, but it doesn’t have to be when you know how to help yourself or others in a compassionate way.

Gayle Lantz speaks with Marcia Donziger, Founder & CEO, Healthy Culture, Happy People . Marcia shares her story of hope as a survivor of ovarian cancer. She offers guidance for executives–whether they are dealing with serious illness themselves or want to help others through difficult times.

This episode airs during Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. 

The episode covers:

  • What to do when you receive “bad news” (Pause, Pivot, Propel)
  • The importance of “well-being check-ins” with employees
  • Dealing with multiple setbacks
  • Emotional intelligence as key to understanding and responding to others
  • Suggested approaches for having sensitive conversations
