Traditional leadership programmes focus on the brain, grounded in the belief that knowing how to lead is enough. Embodied leadership moves beyond that. It connects the intelligence of the body to the brain, language and actions for sustainable change.
Leading – both self and others – happens not just through being knowledgeable and learning what change could be like cognitively. It also happens by accessing the wisdom of the body and physically feel the change. Embodied leadership allows you to skillfully navigate stressful (business) situations, thoughts, moods, emotions and behaviour while staying calm and fully present.
Embodied Leadership is not only about what you do and how you lead. It is also about who you are.
