Trauma is being talked about a lot these days. This is a step in the right direction. However, “trauma” is still widely misunderstood, and its impact on our lives and workplaces widely underestimated.
“Trauma” is simply “too much, too fast”. It can also be “too much, too soon” or “too much for too long”. It’s also “not enough for too long.” Basically, trauma is what happens inside of us when what happens to us overwhelms our ability to adapt or cope.
Trauma doesn’t just come from one horrible incident in the past. It also comes from ongoing stressors like inhumane workplace cultures, impossible societal expectations, income inequality, racism, climate anxiety and eco-grief, societal collapse, and global pandemics. Trauma is widespread, common, and deep — including at the top levels of our most well-known global organizations.
