Karen Millsap took a personal tragedy, turned it into purpose, and is paying it forward. She educates employers on how they can best support grieving employees. As she states, "Tragedy or life altering changes occur in all of our lives at some point: death of a loved one, divorce, health-related issues, and more, produce an emotional distress that is impossible to 'turn off' at work."
Discover practical empathy, reinforce unity and elevate performance
In this session we will
Karen Millsap became a widow at 29 when her husband was tragically murdered while teaching his CrossFit class. After losing most of her support network and experiencing a domino effect of other losses, Karen recognized the overall lack of assistance in our society for grieving people.
This realization ignited Karen’s desire to launch The Grief Consultant, a company that offers leadership development workshops and strategic reinforcement programs targeting emotional awareness.
In addition, Karen speaks at conferences nationwide and hosts community events to teach how everyone can put compassion into action - and why it’s important we don’t stand idle in the face of each other's struggles. She has designed practical tools that, when combined with her inspirational story and magnetic personality, fortify unity and uplift humanity.
Karen has been featured on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Good Morning Washington and various news outlets. She's also been featured by SHRM Magazine and is a regular contributor to the international online magazine, Richtopia.
This event was previously scheduled for October 6th, but was postponed until November due to Hurricane Matthew.
