Overview : Whether we are expecting it or not, life will throw a monkey wrench at all of us, derailing the perfectly laid plans of our future. When an employee is suffering a setback due to a significant health, family or financial loss, the demeanor of the employee will change while s/he is addressing the challenge.

Why should you attend : Great managers provide encouragement and support for their employees knowing their well-being has direct correlation to the work they perform – they are the same person they were before the setback occurred. Providing the right support for the employee will allow them to recover and re-engage at the same level or with greater productivity then they were prior to the setback.
