About Leadership Embodiment
Leadership Embodiment offers tools and practices that help us be more effective in how we relate to others, and ourselves particularly when we are under pressure and feel threatened. Each of us has patterns that arise when we are confronted with a leadership task or challenge. Often 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 stress the body always wins. The body needs to experience skillful alternatives that then translate into a deeper understanding and a capacity to take a different action.

Instead of focusing on the mind and theory, the focus is on the body and using our energy to create a positive shift. There are 3 core competencies that the work develops:
• 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
