Executive Roundtable | Courageous Connections: Healing from Trauma and Leadership

This is for you if:

  • You judge yourself or fear how others will perceive you if they knew of your private past abuse or trauma
  • You fear the loss of reputation, job or income, if your employer/clients knew of your past trauma
  • You find yourself compartmentalizing your life and feeling disengaged
  • You are suffering in silence even as a powerful adult
  • You lack trust or intimacy in relationships professionally and personally

You'll learn:

  • How to face your inner demons, past and fears
  • How to identify and process your trauma, so that you may find a safe place and tribe who can support you in your healing journey
  • How to step up boldly, own your personal power and be unapologetically yourself to make an impact in another leader’s life and transformation

Key Takeaways:

  • Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score
  • Understand the importance of mental health and that healing is a process
  • Forgiveness, Service and Storytelling (reframing and sharing your stories as the powerful adults you are now/becoming) are foundational to breaking the cycle of intergenerational trauma 

What to expect:

  • This week's topic focuses on conversations about past experiences that caused trauma, which may be triggering for some individuals. Please be aware and prepared for potentially difficult and/or uncomfortable discussion(s).
  • Small group discussions in breakout rooms - get ready to have some real talk with your peers
  • Typically the presentation portion is recorded, but the breakout rooms will not be recorded

This is a part of Ellevate's Executive Program.

Ellevate’s three programs (Executives, Entrepreneurs, and Rising Leaders) offer a variety of flexible ways to learn alongside peers, including Roundtables, Workshops, local Chapter Meetups, and our 12-Week Squads Program.
