Embodied Leadership is an approach based upon what neuroscience has already proven – that the mind and body are inseparable and inextricably linked. Both need to be nurtured in order for us to function fully and completely.
Embodied Leaders understand the importance of leveraging the body’s wisdom and leading from a regulated nervous system. Embodied Leaders have a greater capacity to remain grounded and centered even in the most complex or chaotic of situations because they can tune into sensations and somatic cues and use them to inform their decision-making.
Typical executive leadership coaching programs focus above the neck, without recognizing that we live in bodies with nervous systems and physiology that contribute substantially to our vitality and our ability to navigate the business world with ease, flow, and influence.
The business world can offer infinite opportunities, but can also be focused on power, hierarchy and competition, which can prevent female leaders from advancing and succeeding. It is a world of extremely intelligent and high performing individuals, who rely heavily on brain power to succeed.
A more embodied approach that leverages the mind-body connection allows high-performing leaders to navigate corporate and business environments with more energy, clarity, and effectiveness – which prevents burnout. Collaborative interaction and dialogue between mind and body are essential for leadership development and deep transformation.
I offer an approach to leadership development that focuses on the mind-heart-body connection, which is unique and effective.
