We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring Samreen McGregor.

How does trauma shape our behavior in the workplace? Join us as we explore this profound question with executive coach and strategic advisor Samreen McGregor. Samreen shares personal stories, including her son’s courageous battle with brain cancer, shedding light on how significant life events can leave lasting imprints on our professional lives. We draw from her insightful article in choice Magazine, “The Learned Behaviorist Traumas: Understanding how they show up in the workplace,” to uncover how both ‘big T’ and ‘small t’ traumas manifest in our daily work environment.

Discover the intricate ways trauma influences workplace dynamics and personal growth. Through real-world examples like dealing with difficult bosses and high-performing teams navigating the pandemic, we emphasize the importance of recognizing and addressing these hidden triggers. Samreen’s expertise provides valuable strategies for intentional reflection and growth, empowering you to break harmful patterns and foster a healthier, more supportive professional atmosphere. Don’t miss this enlightening conversation that promises to transform your understanding of trauma and its impact on your career.
