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. 

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. This workshop is for leaders, managers, supervisors and anyone providing leadership within an organization.

Some of the topics included:

  • Trauma's ripple effect
  • The impact of trauma in the workplace
  • Characteristics of a trauma-informed leader
  • Five principles of trauma-informed workplaces
  • Steps for implementing principles

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the prevalence and impact of trauma on individuals and organizations
  • List five key trauma-informed principles
  • Describe practical strategies for implementing each of the five-trauma-informed principles
  • Assess their own orgnaization for areas of trauma-informed strengths and weaknesses
