Refreshing Leadership Podcast

Welcome to Refreshing Leadership, the podcast that brings together bottom line, no-nonsense information on what makes a great executive and leader in the modern, uncertain world.

Being trauma-informed isn’t wearing kid gloves. Instead, it is gritty, real-time permission to ask the questions that are often ignored, to openly be curious about what trauma lies beneath and how best to work WITH it, not ON it (this would be therapy).

It is a brave, bold space. And sorely needed.

I bring you trauma-informed leadership with a difference, through engaging interviews, expert discussions, and real-life stories. Some guests are from academia, both theory and practice, where they bring to life the science and evidence base of authentic self-awareness, vulnerability, trust, and high performance under pressure. Other guests are seasoned and experienced across many fields, sharing deep insights and home truths from what they have learnt on their journeys, and how this might help you.

Together we hold the door open for you to come through, where you can be a really great human, smashing your own targets out of the park, and leading a happy, thriving, team to business and personal success.

I explain how it is that what we have learnt from the fields of Trauma can help us all better navigate our Nervous System reactions to pressures from our environment, people, relationships, money, love, and even (or most definitely) intimacy and trust!

In this sense, being a Trauma-Informed Leader gives you insight into understanding how these pressures affect us all to varying degrees, and our nervous systems play a crucial role in how we navigate and heal from these experiences.

There is indeed a connection between your nervous system, and your leadership style. 

Refreshing Leadership gives permission for open and honest conversations that have a positive, lasting, ripple effect. I provide a platform for leaders to openly discuss the challenges they face and seek practical solutions for growth and transformation.

  1. Tools and strategies for building trust and fostering connection in your personal and professional relationships.
  2. Insights into how trauma shapes our nervous system responses and influences our leadership style.
