Pre-pandemic percentages of people who reported suffering the effects of a traumatic event topped nearly 90%. Leaders often experience traumatic events doubly, as well as the personal effects of being traumatized and secondary effects from those they lead. So, is there a path for leaders to move themselves and others from surviving to thriving personally and organizationally? This workshop will present research on pre-pandemic interpersonal reactions with which leaders must contend. The presenter will utilize the four characteristics of transformational leadership to provide a framework for attendees to learn how to create five main “seedbeds” necessary for opportunities for post-traumatic growth and organizational success. This workshop will give attendees tools for personal growth and strategically leading others.

Learning Objectives

1. Utilize a self-leadership assessment based on the trauma adversity cycle that assists them in self-awareness of current interpersonal tendencies
2. Develop relevant health assessments for employee trauma adversity, assisting in strategic leadership planning and implementation
3. Develop a relevant evaluation tool to utilize on implemented leadership strategies, resulting in knowledge of their leadership strengths and needed areas of improvement
