That Discomfort You’re Feeling Is Grief
David Kessler is interviewed by Scott Berinato for HBR, published online 23rd March 2020.
‘Some of the HBR edit staff met virtually the other day — a screen full of faces in a scene becoming more common everywhere. We talked about the content we’re commissioning in this harrowing time of a pandemic and how we can help people. But we also talked about how we were feeling. One colleague mentioned that what she felt was grief. Heads nodded in all the panes.
If we can name it, perhaps we can manage it.’
HBR turned to David Kessler for ideas on how to do that and he shared his thoughts on why it’s important to acknowledge the grief you may be feeling, how to manage it, and how he believes we will find meaning in it.
