Through our various Leadership Embodiment programs we support individuals and leaders to develop greater capacity to deal with effectively with ongoing life stresses and make a bold and valuable contribution.
Stress makes us stupid – seriously… we lose some and sometimes much of our ability to think well when we are stressed. And, using our bodies we can regain perspective, remain calm and relaxed, and focus on the big picture.
You may know that research shows that at least 70% of all communication is non-verbal. For us to be credible our message, emotions and body need to be in sync. When they aren’t, it negatively affects our relationships and leadership capacity.
Leadership Embodiment will help you notice your patterns when under stress and more importantly positively shift your patterns through simple tools and practices. In doing so we have more choice and range of action available to us, as well as a sense of calm and ease – pretty big stuff in the world we live in today.
Using the body is crucial because under pressure the body always wins… think of when you get a fright and what you do first. Your body reacts even if you “know” what happened wasn’t really threatening.
Leadership Embodiment helps us tap into our body intelligence, and use the wisdom of the body to be healthier, less stressed, and be more skilled in life and relationships.
There are 3 core skills you will learn through the work:
- Being inclusive, especially in difficult situations
- Speaking up for what we believe in, even when there is strong resistance
- Listening to everything that is being said without taking things personally
Leadership Embodiment has extensive application both personally and professionally. People who have experienced the work find it easy to apply in all aspects of their lives.
