Description

A compassionate and trauma-informed approach to leadership is essential for creating healthy workplace cultures. Trauma is prevalent in our world and has an impact on many of the people we interact with, including staff and colleagues. Based on our book, A Little Book About Trauma-Informed Workplaces, this workshop explores how to lead with a trauma-informed approach and provides five key principles that trauma-informed workplaces embody. By embracing these principles, organizations can contribute to the positive transformation of individuals and relationships affected by trauma, while at the same time creating the conditions that lead to high levels of employee engagement and organizational success. Every organization, from any sector, can benefit from becoming trauma-informed.
