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.
You are likely a high-performing leader who is admired by your colleagues and team, but beneath the surface you struggle with self-doubt. Perhaps you have difficulty setting boundaries, have a fear of disappointing others, or try to over control outcomes so as to not make mistakes. This leads to persistent stress and anxiety. While you have some coping mechanisms in place, they only offer temporary relief, and the stress cycle always returns. This is where an embodied approach to leadership development comes in and can help you.
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. Embodied Leaders know when to turn off the their minds and tap into the wisdom of their bodies and nervous systems.
The business world is full of extremely intelligent and high performing individuals like you who rely heavily on brain power to succeed. This is why typical leadership development programs tend to only focus on the mind, 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.
Programs that solely focus on cognitive approaches to growth and development only scratch the surface. I offer an approach to leadership development that focuses on the mind-heart-body connection, which is unique and effective - leading to deeper transformation.
The Embodied Leadership Group Coaching program leverages the mind-body connection and guides high-performing women 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.
