#LeaderLinks: What to Know About the Newest Class of Mortuary School Grads


By Leader Contributor Emma Horton

In this week’s edition of the weekly roundup, we have found podcasts, informational talks, and news articles – everything from preventing compassion fatigue to Swedish death cleaning.

  • Read The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson to find purpose and joy in the items that you keep. The Swedish decluttering process – known as döstädning – focuses on the need to get rid of items you don’t need before others have to do it for you.
  • Listen to My Fantasy Funeral’s discussion with Nashville entrepreneur Nathanael Mehren about his funeral wishes. He covers everything from his grandparents’ influence on song choices to a beloved author he would resurrect to deliver his eulogy.
  • Read about compassion fatigue and learn how to prevent this from happening to your staff members. Small, everyday steps such as self-care and setting emotional boundaries can make a world of difference in an oftentimes taxing profession.
