Trauma Informed Leadership

Trauma-Informed Leadership understands and appreciates the emotional scars that people may be struggling with. These might be directly related to the pandemic, indirectly triggered by what has happened following Covid19, or may result from people’s wider life experiences.

Trauma might include guilt, loss, grief, neglect, abuse, betrayal of trust, pain, a sudden change in circumstance or a loss of purpose combined with a sense of powerlessness. Approaching leadership with an understanding of trauma helps us see and treat others, and ourselves, with more empathy and compassion. It can also help protect against stress and burnout.

This virtual workshop is not about diagnosing or psycho-analysing yourself or your colleagues. It is not about being a therapist in your leadership role. It is about creating a working environment which is supportive to people who have experienced trauma – and that may include you.

You will not be asked to talk about traumatic experiences you have experienced.

This workshop will offer you:

• an understanding of what trauma is and how it can be experienced in many different ways and from very diverse perspectives

• a practical toolkit to help you prepare, protect and care for yourself as a leader in the demanding months ahead

• a safe space to explore what compassionate leadership means in practice

• practical ways to model and create psychological safety in your teams

The session will be co-facilitated by Dr Jeanne Hardacre and Georgia Twigg, who worked together as part of the Wellbeing Team at NHS Nightingale London. Jeanne is an independent practitioner in leadership, team development and workplace culture. Georgia is a mental health specialist occupational therapist and lecturer. She co-developed and delivered Psychological PPE training to several hundred staff at NHS Nightingale London.
