Embodying Leadership Under Pressure ~ Level 1

Are you the leader that you know you are capable of being? What happens when you’re under pressure?

At some point, we all lose our capacity to respond skillfully, with ourselves and others. Do you ever find yourself in patterns of:

  • Losing sight of the big picture?
  • Saying things you regret?
  • Being hard on yourself?
  • Pushing others too hard?
  • Avoiding conflict?
  • Losing touch with your core values?

Each of us has deeply embedded patterns — especially when life gets stressful.

Is it possible to shift our reactions under pressure, without years of therapy? Yes. Through the body.

This experiential workshop offers you practices and tools to become aware of your unconscious patterns under pressure — and to truly shift them.

Working with the body, you will learn practical and powerful ways to:

  • Handle stressful situations with greater ease and skill
  • Calm your inner critic
  • Be less reactive and more creative
  • Get clear about your truth and express it authentically
  • Hear others more fully
  • Become aware of what your body communicates under pressure
  • Expand your natural presence, resilience, wisdom and compassion
  • Embody leadership

This workshop draws on Aikido, mindfulness and the latest research in neuroscience. It is designed for professionals, parents — anyone who experiences pressure when relating with life.

Coaches: This workshop is available for CCEs with the ICF.

Leadership Embodiment (LE) draws on the traditions of mindfulness and Aikido, a revolutionary non-aggressive martial art that offers simple yet deep techniques that help you recognize how your mind and body habitually react to pressure. It was created by Wendy Palmer, who holds a sixth degree blackbelt and has practiced mindfulness for 45 years. She is author of two books, The Intuitive Body and The Practice of Freedom.
