An Executive’s Unexpected Journey - Managing Grief in the Workplace

Ron Gold talks about a bike ride that put him on a path he never expected to take and forever changed his life. After being hit and seriously injured by an SUV, Ron’s successful 25-year career on Wall Street ended abruptly. He went through five months of hospitalization and therapy and returned home to begin a new life that depended on full-time home care.

That need set him on the path of entrepreneurship that today has helped thousands who have similar needs. Coach Linda explores his decision to leave his job on Wall Street despite managers who would have eagerly accepted him back to his prior job and instead start his company Lean On We.
