Responding to Organizational Trauma


When humans face a traumatic experience, our brains kick in with survival mechanisms. These mechanisms are the familiar fight, flight or freeze response. Freeze occurs when we are terrified or feel that there is no chance of escape.

Organizations display very similar behavior. Being stuck in flight or freeze prevents us from innovating and moving forward. This is very counterproductive to the idea of learning and growing as an organization.

The communication, coordination, and decision-making skills needed to battle this are amongst the most sought-after skills. In our latest episode of CCC Talks, Matt Stratton explains how and why you should seek to remedy trauma.
