What is a Trauma-Informed Leader?

Trauma-informed leaders have a non-judgmental, curious stance about patterns of behavior that may impact the work environment. They seek to understand and build relationships. They create intentional opportunities to repair when harm has taken place. They collaborate and walk alongside those they lead.

In short, trauma-informed leaders are effective because they see their congregations, employees, students, and colleagues as people first.

Why does it matter?

Based upon SAMHSA's evidence-based approach, BE Consulting works with leaders to build engagement, empowerment, and collaboration. 


Each person has a unique lived experience that informs the way they show up in every area of life. Trauma informed leadership realizes the impact of different experiences and identities, and recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma—not only in those they lead, but also within themselves. Healthy leaders are effective leaders, and we are invested in your well-being.
