Social & Emotional Isolation

No-one is talking about it and it's killing us

Most people don't talk about social or emotional isolation and yet, its impacting everyone at some level.

In the work that I do with leaders and business owners, there are 8 major life events that will impact a leader and can be the cause for them to spiral into isolation. By the way, when I say isolation, I dont mean being a hermit on an island. People can isolated with people all around them, living with their spouse or partner and going to work and 'going through the motions'. They are either emotionally isolated or mentally isolated or both.

We all do it occasionally in life and that's normal. What we have to look out for as leaders is the ripple effect of life's upsets and turns happening quickly that see us unaware of losing contact and connection with the support people in our lives and business.

The 8 major life challenges that destabilise the best of us are:

  • Death of a loved one or colleage
  • Divorce
  • Marriage
  • Becoming a Parent
  • Debilitating Illness
  • Relocation
  • Redundancy
  • Caring for someone full time

One or some of these situations will happen to you during your life. They will impact your ability to be effective in your work, be able to communicate well, and will limit your capacity to keep connections and friendships healthy and supportive. 

Do you have a plan on how to manage this? Most people don't think these things will affect them much and then when they are in the situation, its a lot harder to recognise whats going on and then deal with it.

The Greatness Principle is a tool that teaches people how to recognise their support team in any area of their life. How to nurture that team and also how to manage themselves and their team when life throws it's inevitable curve balls. 

If you or anyone you know is doing it tough, they are not connected to many people and really want to change that and build their life, then please, give them a gift that will teach them how to take charge of their life and give them this book.
