Trauma Responsive Leadership Development

Executive leaders are facing unprecedented toxic stress and trauma personally, professionally, and within their institutions. Organizationally, the cumulative impact manifests as distrust, breakdown in communication, demoralization, and disconnection, and can ultimately lead to attrition at a time when advanced leadership is most necessary.


A sustainable remedy requires insight, additional skills, and a deliberative process for restoration of individual and collective capacity. The process begins with leaders committed to learning the skills necessary to lead beyond the trauma of these times, and build cultures that are restorative, relational, and strengthen both institutions and individuals.


Lodestar leadership development programs are tailored to organizational needs, are intensive, collaborative, and specifically designed for advanced leadership. Our Senior Faculty are highly trained and experienced:  participants will be expertly engaged in the acquisition of advanced skills in trauma-responsive interactions while simultaneously experiencing real-time stress and trauma mitigation.  This results in unparalleled professional growth and insight, skills in trauma-awareness, and immediately actionable leadership strategies. 


Lodestar faculty are experts in narrative facilitation strategies that model self-regulation, presence-centering, and trauma-responsive engagement.  Lodestar leadership development programs are both powerful and lasting.

Everyone is looking for expanded skills and deeper connection - Lodestar can help. ​


Trauma-Responsive Culture Development

The need for trauma-aware and trauma-responsive teams, leadership, and workplace cultures has gained new urgency.  The cumulative stress and trauma of recent years has profoundly disrupted the institutions that underpin our lives.  Toxic stress has eroded many once-vibrant workplaces beyond recognition and created cultures of:

- Burnout

- Absenteeism

- Attrition

- Increased workplace incivility

- Early retirements

- Discharge of frustration and anger

- Decreased professional fulfillment

- Disconnection 

- Decreased productivity


Lodestar faculty are experts in narrative facilitation strategies that model self-regulation, presencing, and trauma-responsive engagement.  The result is leadership and culture development that is both powerful and lasting.

Everyone is looking for expanded skills and deeper connection - Lodestar can help. ​
