Stress, Trauma, and Resilience Training
This FREE virtual training, brought to you in partnership with the Port of Seattle, is a unique opportunity to learn from an expert who specializes in helping people managers understand signs of stress and trauma and provide practical tools to help team members increase resilience and effectiveness at work. This training will be provided monthly throughout 2021.
"In over 45 years of developing and managing teams in medium and large retail, technical and healthcare service organizations, the Stress, Trauma, and Resilience training is the most effective and relevant training I have experienced. The empathetic people development principles and tools are relevant to every organization. The utility is particularly applicable to the high stress levels present for everyone."
