Executive Coaching & Leadership Development

Cultural Intelligence & Unconscious Bias

Organizationally, your commitment to building a diverse and inclusive culture has been stated and invested in earnestly. Yet, results are in pockets and less than consistent.

The tensions of differences and unnamed biases prevail just under the surface making it puzzling to name or complicated to address. 

It is imperative that your executive leadership team views the challenge of equity and access as an opportunity, not a threat. 

Thirst Matters brings Executive Cultural Intelligence Assessments & Training and Unconscious Bias Executive Coaching and Leadership Training to prepare your Executive Leadership Team as we fix the broken spaces and in turn, allow your multi-ethnic culture to thrive. 

“The desire to treat other people with honor and respect doesn’t automatically mean our behavior comes across as dignifying and kind. There are various adaptations necessary in order to ensure people experience respect and honor from us.”

Understanding The Impact of traumA

Trauma-Informed Culture & Leadership Development

Creating a trauma informed culture and leadership development strategy is essential for organizations that are engaging trauma-affected communities. 

Our approach is steeped in the latest research, while being awareness focused and community asset-based. We are not asking your leaders to become counselors, but to be informed partners and aware advocates. 

Resiliency resources and the latest growth mindset science are antidotes to toxic stress and trauma. We train you on how to deliver these resources effectively and empathetically to your affected communities, influencers and people in the trenches. 

Our solutions are custom designed to help you connect with and collaboratively lead within your business, education, public service or spiritual formation platform. 

Examples of leadership development topics include the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), trauma and toxic stress 101, resilience building, the intersectionality & bias of gender and race, cultural intelligence and growth mindset leadership. Executive coaching and organizational development services available. 

Understanding childhood trauma

How Childhood Trauma Affects Health Across A Lifetime

Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.
