Helping Leaders and Team Members

~ Connect 

~ Communicate

~ Collaborate

Prior to 2020, it was estimated that more than 70% of adults had experienced at least one traumatic event in their lives. Now that we’ve lived through (and are still experiencing) a global pandemic and magnification of social injustice, you can only imagine how much higher this statistic is now. Or maybe you can’t...that’s actually a large part of the problem. Many leaders and employees don’t have an accurate understanding of trauma and its impact on their daily functioning.


Trauma is an invisible wound that impacts every workplace.


This invisible wound affects a person’s physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual health. Additionally, trauma determines how individuals relate to others, drives decision making, and impacts innovative thinking. Therefore trauma can not be viewed as an individual employee’s experience but as something that serves as a core driver of an organization’s ability to function well and adapt effectively.

ENR Training and Consulting provides training, coaching, and consulting to help organizations create well workplaces and retain diverse talent. Our proprietary framework, Trauma Informed LENS, equips leaders with the skills necessary to manage a workforce which has faced chronic stress and trauma. We address the following areas:


LEARN Learn how stress and trauma impact decision making, communication skills, innovation, relationships.


EMPATHY Lead with empathy and compassion to build a culture of trust, psychological safety, belonging, and inclusion.


NAVIGATE Navigate relationships and change management to effectively communicate and create collaboration around the strategic vision of the organization.


SELF-CARE Practice self-care to improve mental health, build resiliency and prevent burnout.
