Course Description: 

This training is geared towards creating an environment that promotes Inclusive Leadership and Trauma-Informed supervision. The course helps leaders, supervisors, and managers create common, shared language and understanding across their organizations.

Inclusive Leadership

As conversations around racial equity, diversity, and inclusion has become increasingly more common, leading leaders to really challenge themselves toward developing steps to integrate Inclusive leadership to move their businesses forward. Increasing diversity and having anti-bias training are good primary steps but creating a truly inclusive and diverse workforce goes much deeper.

In order to help leaders, supervisors or managers evaluate their own strategies and approaches, we discuss the importance of understanding the 6 Cs of inclusive leaders. 

Trauma-Informed Approach

Clients interacting with various agencies and service providers across our systems deserve to reap the full benefits of the implementation of trauma-informed care; that means within our entire organization we must be engaged in moving Trauma-Informed approaches forward. 

As a supervisor in these organizations, you are in a unique position to help influence the culture. The staff looks directly to you for guidance and support in many areas, trauma-informed will be another area in which you will have the opportunity to prepare staff to have a positive impact on the population they serve. As a supervisor, this course will offer you tools, and practical skills that impact your supervision style on a variety of levels.
