Your employees’ personal and professional lives often intersect in complex ways and leaders face the challenge of navigating the silent undercurrents of trauma that can ripple through the workplace. This micro module is designed to equip leaders, managers, and organisations with the sensitivity, insight, and tools necessary to support a workforce that may be quietly struggling beneath the surface.
In this intimate video series, Farrah explores the multi-faceted impact of trauma, acknowledging its presence and understanding how it shapes the dynamics of teams and the individual experiences of employees. From the generational echoes that shape our perspectives to the acute crises that demand our immediate attention, Farrah explores the subtleties of leadership that make room for empathy, inclusivity, and authenticity.
Leaders will learn to keep their “radar screen” attuned to the emotional and mental well-being of their teams, understanding how global events and personal challenges affect the work environment. We will discuss the importance of vulnerability in leadership and how self-disclosure can create a culture of strength and openness. Additionally, we will confront the need for ongoing education to combat the impacts of bias, stereotype threat, and exclusion.
By integrating personal stories with professional strategies, this micro module aims to illuminate the path forward for leaders who are ready to create workplaces where every individual feels recognised, supported, and empowered to contribute to their fullest potential.
