Become a Trauma Informed Leader

So much of your success as a leader depends on your ability to learn from personal trials, errors, and resolved or unresolved trauma. Your resilience in the wake of a challenge influences your leadership style and how you respond to stress and pain points in the workplace. In this course, instructor Dawn Emerick shows you how to identify the three E’s of trauma, respond to trauma without causing secondary or vicarious trauma, and create a space of emotional safety for the whole team.

Explore the meaning and scope of trauma as experienced by individuals and collectively by groups. Find out why today’s leaders need to lead with a trauma-informed lens in the workplace, as Dawn teaches you about the six principles of trauma-informed leadership: safety; trust; peer support and healing; collaboration; voice and choice; and culture, history, and gender. Upon completing this course, you’ll have a better understanding of how to apply each to common workplace scenarios.
