The right/wrong/win/lose paradigm in business and workplace relationships is double-edged.
What we are learning about Childhood Trauma's impact on workplace relationships is alarming. Trauma doesn’t come back as a memory; it comes back as a response and a trigger. The subconscious wounds of Childhood Trauma trigger fight, flight, or freeze, shutting down the language and listening centers.
In this episode with guest Kari O’Driscoll, who heads up The Self Project, we dive deep into relationship dynamics in work and business and the negative impact on productivity, job, life satisfaction, and fulfillment. Relationships provide a learning space for human beings; we learn that we can show up as our authentic selves as we build a relationship. We discover the power in our vulnerability rather than the notion that makes us weak.
Kari is a writer and the founder of The SELF Project, an organization dedicated to improving connections and relationships. She works with families and organizations as they learn to have difficult conversations in new, meaningful ways that can shift us toward creative ways of relating.
