The Human Resources Association of Treasure Valley is pleased to announce the June Professional Development and Networking Program "Trauma Sensitive Leadership: Creating More Compassionate Workplaces" presented by Manya Chylinski. Every leader wants healthy people in their workforce. But what do you do when you or your team are overworked, stressed, and non-productive? Individual resiliency is important, but it’s not the true foundation for a supportive and successful work environment. This keynote offers a guide for validating difficult experiences and creating a compassionate workplace to intentionally reduce stressors and foster engagement. Manya illuminates new perspectives on the role of leadership and the importance of paying attention to what matters to people’s lives.
ABOUT OUR PRESENTER
Manya learned about courage, strength, and resilience the hard way – when bombs exploding at the finish line of the Boston Marathon shattered her life. From her experience of post-traumatic stress and being an invisible victim because of her lack of physical injuries, Manya gained an understanding of what it means to find one’s voice and fight for a seat at the table, the importance of moving past stigma and recognizing psychological impacts of violence and other difficult events, and the value of compassion and inclusiveness. A communications expert with a background in writing, research, and marketing, Manya has become an advocate for people who experience psychological wounds after violent events. And she has transformed her experience to become a keynote speaker helping individuals and organizations understand the psychological impacts of trauma, discover their strengths, build resiliency, and navigate through change and crisis. She explores difficult topics with compassion and honesty about her own journey and struggles. Through working with and meeting other survivors, first responders and receivers, and professionals in emergency management, homeland security, and public health, Manya knows the power of validation in resilience, recovery, and growth. She is passionate about getting the message out and helping audiences find their strengths and take the next steps.
