In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, host Brandon Laws welcomes Carolyn Swora, a trauma-informed leadership and culture consultant and the author of Evolve: The Path to Trauma-Informed Leadership. The two discuss Carolyn’s personal journey from navigating her husband’s terminal kidney cancer to her eventual path to healing. Listen in to learn the impact of trauma in the workplace and how leaders can adopt more compassionate and human-centered approaches toward their people.



  • Being attuned to others' experiences and valuing their perspectives is at the core of self-awareness and leadership.

  • The foundation of leadership lies in awareness and the ability to navigate emotional complexities in a noisy world.

  • The terms "care" and "trauma" aren’t often used in the corporate context, but the collective trauma experienced during the pandemic has brought these concepts to the forefront, making it crucial for workplaces to acknowledge and address them.

  • Leaders must understand trauma, its effects, and how they can foster a sense of belonging by honoring the diverse experiences of their team members.

  • Evolved leaders recognize the interconnectedness of safety, authenticity, and consistency.
