My name is Trace Hobson. I was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. I reside and run Trace Hobson Training in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Introduction: I’m a specialist in helping healthcare managers and workers identify and transform toxic stress, anxiety, and unresolved systemic trauma that they or their team are experiencing.

What I do: I help tired stressed-out healthcare managers and their teams create safety, relief and joy in their workplaces.

Unique Features: I've created a leadership development program that uses the Canadian standard for psychological health and safety, Transformational Presence Coaching, and a trauma-informed systemic review to guide, equip and mentor healthcare managers and workers in creating a safe, light and joyful workplace.

Recent work I'm proud of: Last year, I worked with a healthcare manager and her team of frontline workers to help them go from being burned out and ready to leave healthcare altogether—to being completely joyful, inspired, and engaged with the passion that they had when they first decided to help people.

Why is this so important to me? For many years, I lived with the experience of physical, emotional, and psychological danger and threat frozen inside my body, while everyone around me had no idea.

I've experienced firsthand what life and work are like when toxic stress, anxiety, and trauma are unresolved. My body broke down, my relationships suffered, and I created and experienced toxic stress at work.

For many years I tried to cope by myself and ended up suffering.

Suffering in silence is no way to live or work.

I have since discovered that what we cannot do alone, we can do together.

Now I use my 25 years of experience in executive leadership, technical project management, and advanced credentials in psychological health and safety, leadership coaching, and systemic coaching to serve people who are here to serve others.

It is my goal to help people that help others. I believe that we can transform healthcare together because no one will do it alone.
