OP­TION B: FAC­ING AD­VER­SITY, BUILD­ING RE­SILIENCE, AND FIND­ING JOY

Collective Hub - - AT WORK -

by SH­ERYL SAND­BERG AND ADAM GRANT

‘How are you, to­day?’ It’s a sim­ple ques­tion but one which Sh­eryl Sand­berg thinks, in light of sud­denly los­ing her hus­band in 2015, could help us all. When many friends chose to say noth­ing at all, for fear of mak­ing her grief worse, the Lean In au­thor found these four words said so much – in­clud­ing ac­knowl­edge­ment and care. In Op­tion B, the Face­book COO rec­om­mends those who are griev­ing to never apol­o­gise for the way their grief hits, and for friends to ditch the bur­den-prone ques­tion, ‘Is there any­thing I can do?’, in favour of just go­ing and do­ing some­thing, any­thing, that might help.
