Leading in a Trauma Informed Workplace/Compassion Fatigue for Managers
A second session as a companion to the first, this one for managers and leaders of people on how they can create psychological safety, and create a culture that will support their staff in the midst of a highly emotionally charged environment. We’ll talk about creating a workplace culture agreement, about supporting work/life balance, how to help folks establish and follow boundaries, how to lead by example, etc.
