Each of us has patterns that arise when we are stressed. Our mind understands what is needed to create more skillful interactions, and yet we are not able to do what we so clearly understand. Under duress the body always wins. The body needs to experience skillful alternatives that translate into a deeper capacity to take healthy action. Leadership Embodiment offers tools and practices to help us be more confident and inspired, both in relationships and within ourselves, particularly when we are triggered.
This workshop explores the following practices.
· Inclusiveness: the ability to create an understanding and the felt-sense that we are in this together
· Centered Listening: being able to hear what is being said without taking it personally
· Speaking Up: the skill of speaking one’s truth with clarity and precision while taking a stand
During the workshop we’ll learn about and practice Leadership Embodiment techniques that can shift the way we sit and stand to give us greater access to our innate capacity for wisdom, confidence, and compassion.
