About the event
Why This Free Course: This course is an introduction to the concepts of trauma-informed leadership and workplace.
There are more than 160 million people working in the in the U.S. Research has projected that we spend approximately 81,000 hours working in our lifetime, just behind the amount of time we spend sleeping. Organizations, leaders, and staff have an opportunity to examine the role of work in our lives and develop new ways to engage employees rather than giving them reasons to get as far away from work as possible.
There is a trauma tsunami on the horizon and our businesses are not prepared. Prior to the pandemic, just under 70% of adults in the US report experiencing some form of traumatic event in their lifetime. In other words, if a business employs 100 people, up to 70 employees may be really struggling and may be bringing trauma into the office. Today, I suspect this number is even higher given the uncertainty of the pandemic, mass shootings, natural disasters, race and social justice, political divisiveness. We are all feeling the weight, especially our children.
Leading and managing dynamic organizations is already difficult but it’s even harder for leadership to lead and launch change efforts when they are navigating through their own trauma and/or the disclosed or undisclosed trauma experienced by their workforce.
