Supporting Coworkers Through Personal Challenges

We all have complex lives beyond the office, and sometimes, personal challenges may impact our work. It's crucial to show empathy and understanding when someone shares deeply personal information. Listening to their needs and being approachable are key to providing support. Avoid vague offers and be specific in your assistance. Remember, everyone's situation is unique, so adjust accordingly.

If you're the one sharing personal information, remember you're in control. Share with the number of people you feel comfortable with, no right or wrong answer here. Set expectations on how to get in touch, whether it's a call, text, or video. Communicate your preferred method, ensuring you receive the support you need. Share as much or as little information as you're comfortable with, no judgment. Your well-being matters. 💙
