Reading a Compass

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. ​


Consulting: Executive & Organizational 

The creation of trauma-aware and trauma-responsive teams, leadership, and workplace cultures has gained new urgency.   The cumulative stress of the past few years has resulted in profound disruption to the institutions and systems underpinning our lives.  Toxic stress in the workplace has become ubiquitous, and many once-vibrant work cultures have eroded beyond recognition.  

Prolong exposure of a workforce to toxic stress leads to: 

- Burnout

- Absenteeism

- Attrition

- Increased workplace incivility

- Early retirements

- Increased discharge of frustration and anger

- Decreased professional fulfillment

- Mass resignations

- Apathy

- Disconnection / Disassociation

- Decreased productivity


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

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