The Resilience Champion

Developing Your Culture

In this section, you’ll learn about the role of culture in sustaining a trauma-informed approach and define the values that will help promote a resilience-building culture in your setting.

Key Takeaways:

  • One definition of culture is a “set of shared attitudes, values, goals, or practices that characterize an institution or organization.”  
  • The culture you nurture is going to help sustain your resilience-building efforts. As said by management guru Peter Drucker, “culture eats strategy for breakfast.”
  • Culture works on multiple levels. Some of these levels are explicit, but many of them are implicit
  • All organizations, communities, and families have a culture, whether it has been created intentionally or not. Part of being intentional is articulating a set of values for setting. Those values will help guide your implementation.
  • As an example, we shared four values we defined for Origins. We chose these values because they are rooted in many of the key concepts behind a trauma-informed and resilience-building approach.
