IMPROVE AGILITY AND RESILIENCE, ADDRESS ORGANIZATIONAL TRAUMA
Like people, organizations can also go through trauma. Trauma is the Greek word for wound. Some wounds heal on their own, but other wounds require care. As with people, untended wounds can infect and have serious consequences. Unprocessed profound trauma can affect an organization’s profitability. Often these organizations stagnate, teams do not achieve the desired results, absenteeism increases, strikes occur, the organization’s agility and resilience disappear. If organizational traumas are not addressed they can eventually become part of the corporate culture making the impact even greater.
CONSEQUENCES OF ORGANIZATIONAL TRAUMA
Trauma in organizations can originate at different levels: at the level of the organization, a department or team, a person, a position or a task. The origin of a trauma is internal or external. Consider a major restructuring or the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. Depending on the level and origin, trauma requires a specific approach.
However, organizational trauma is often complex and difficult to detect and recognize. This is because it is highly sensitive and usually triggers intense emotions. Approaching trauma requires a safe “holding space.” We ensure that the systemic principles of the organization become healthy again.

- The workers want to strike, our organization goes into power-off

We would love to help you identify the cause and get your organization back to vitality.
