In this conversation, Dr Claudelle and Pam Kleinot discuss trauma, how it impacts on how we show up in the world of work and how we can recognise the symptoms of trauma. What is transgenerational/intergenerational trauma? Could you as a leader be dealing with the symptoms of transgenerational trauma either in your own life or in the lives of those you lead?
It is incumbent on each of us to constantly evaluate whether our moral compass is still pointing to our true north. We need to continually ask ourselves whether our actions are informed by our own beliefs that we carefully considered, before we concluded that they are fit to be used in our moral compass. How certain are we that we are not just believing what we are because those around us believe it? Or, that we are believing what we are because those who we have crowned with a halo believe it? Applying one’s own mind is paramount if we were to avoid the temptation of outsourcing our morality to others.
