Overcoming the disability mindset
In this episode, we talk about the “Disability Mindset.” A term that describes a mindset that can develop after an employee becomes ill or injured – taking them out of the workplace – where they begin focusing more on their disability rather than their ability to return to work. Joining us to talk about this topic are two Lincoln Financial Group employees. Saretha Bradley, and Melissa Michuda of Lincoln’s Vocational and Clinical Operations. During this episode we discuss:
- What the term "disability mindset" means
- How open communication and education surrounding disability programs is key
- The importance of flexibility, customized solutions, and thinking outside the box when it comes to return to work solutions
