A 3-month program for 8 high-performing women leaders. Next group starts February 2024.

We live in unprecedented and unsettling times – times that call for a new kind of leadership. Embodied Leadership.

Facilitated by Adrienne Partridge, Ph.D.



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.


  • Recognize and access sensations and emotions, and where they live in your body.
  • Navigate your emotional triggers.
  • Decrease the intensity and frequency of people pleasing.
  • Use body-based strategies for regulating your nervous system to respond more intentionally rather than reactively.
  • Remain grounded and centered, even amidst chaos.
  • Be a leader who inspires others, builds strong relationships, and makes better decisions.
  • Build your leadership confidence and strategic capacity by leveraging the mind-body relationship.

The group coaching program is focused on 7 modules:

1. Mapping Your Leadership Journey
2. Strengthening the Mind-Body Connection: Nervous System Health and Effective Leadership
3. Squashing People Pleasing & Perfectionism and Reconnecting with Your Natural Born Confidence
4. Identifying and Harnessing Your Most Unique Gifts to Make a Bigger Impact with Ease
5. Defining Your Career Higher Purpose
6. Embodied Approaches to Addressing and Managing Conflict
7. The Art of Giving and Receiving Feedback


As a result of my coaching program, my clients have reported the following outcomes:

"It was such a gift to be in a circle of women from different sectors, geographies, and lived experiences learning and reflecting together on our lives and careers. Adrienne's facilitation is empathetic, research-based, and responsive to what comes up in the group. I particularly appreciated the focus on building awareness of how I am physically experiencing stress and anxiety and building tools to process and manage my nervous system responses."

"As part of the Embodied Leadership Group Coaching program, I was able to meet and connect with other wonderful women focused on becoming better leaders. All caring, supportive and successful in their careers, they, like me, wanted to learn how to embrace their essence as a leader and navigate the sometimes tricky situations that arise in business relationships. Adrienne was the perfect coach, challenging us and allowing us to explore why and how we do things a certain way, and then sharing tips and guidance on how to handle them in ways that might serve us better. I looked forward to our calls and loved how we all felt comfortable sharing ourselves in a smaller group. I highly encourage any woman who wants to learn how to present her authentic self as a leader to join the Embodied Leadership program. "
