Episode 227 Dealing with Stress and Trauma as a Leader with Quint Studer

March 24, 2021

Quint Studer joins Mike for another great interview on this episode.

What's the difference between stress and trauma? 

Quint shares, "in my opinion, I think stress is usually more short-term."

There's also trauma that just continues for so long. It just wears you out. And eventually, you just started what I would call, I can't survive this trauma. 

They talk about the psychological trauma that often can't be seen, but it's there. And certainly, we've experienced that over the last 12 months from a social distancing standpoint, and a leadership standpoint. 

Mike asked Quint, "what do leaders need to be aware of, when they can't see that trauma in their team, but it's there?"

Quint shares resources to help you identify and manage stress and trauma for yourself and to help others. What you don't want to do is identify a need, and say, but we don't have anything to take care of you.
