We are thrilled to introduce you to the 4-day, in-person course Embodied Transformation, a transformative journey that merges leadership principles with the power of the body and provides the foundational introduction to somatic awareness and practice. In proud collaboration with Strozzi Institute, we present a course designed to increase self-awareness, discover your conditioned tendencies, and learn tools to effectively work within your leadership of yourself or others.
The course is created in collaboration with Strozzi Institute – the creator of embodied leadership. It’s a unique, neuroscience-based approach that integrates mindfulness, action-oriented communication, martial arts, and generative conflict training to prepare leaders, coaches, and teams to meet today’s biggest challenges. Offered in partnership with Strozzi Institute, the course brings together the best practices and latest insights in the field.
At the core of our philosophy is the belief that the true potential of leadership lies in understanding and empowering ourselves and people. Each day of the course, we explore how the principles of Embodied Leadership can enhance your ability to connect, inspire, and lead yourself and others effectively.
This course can help participants navigate power dynamics and address common leadership challenges in contemporary workplaces. By reflecting on the practical and theoretical limitations and implications of the applied concepts, theories, and perspectives, people can make informed decisions about the enactment of work and leadership.
Gather with others. Practice working with the soma – the living body in its wholeness. Deepen your ability to take new action under pressure consistently.
That’s Embodied Transformation.
The course takes place over four consecutive days of practice and reflection.
This is a practice-based course. So, we’ll constantly relate theory and tools to realistic and embodied situations that you know from your everyday life. The goal is to develop people who embody the skills of authenticity, integrity, accountability and trust necessary to take skilful, courageous, and innovative action in real-time.
The facilitation takes place in a calm, relaxed atmosphere. This means you can safely make the necessary experimentation and expect positive, forthcoming feedback from the facilitator and your fellow course participants. The curriculum combines cognitive learning with guided exercises, interactive demos, and individual and partner body-based movement practice to create a comprehensive and lasting impact.
On the opening day, we will delve into the body as the domain of action, coordination, learning and dignity, with an introduction to somatic awareness and the intentional practices where we can expand our capacity for presence, connection, collaboration, well-being, and joy.
You’ll set your declaration as you set specific conditions for your investment over these four days. You’ll learn how to embody your commitment to galvanize others, and yourself. As you’ll discover self as your fundamental source of power.
We will discover The Three Circles of Embodied Transformation, a cognitive framework to help you track and understand the many changes and transformations that will take place during the course.
You’ll receive deep attention training as you learn the ancient roots, modern neuroscientific discoveries, and health benefits of sitting, meditation, and more. We will work with how our bodies hold the sum of our histories – our adaptations, practices, resiliencies, and more.
We will discover how to take coordinated, effective action toward a shared vision. You’ll be guided to ask questions of yourself, e.g. What is something you want to promise to say yes to? What is an offer that you need to make to fulfil your declaration? What is an even bolder offer? And more.
Your teacher will take you through a cycle of action as you experience practices to help you stand in your power for what you care about and fight for others in their power.
You’ll participate in large group coaching to help you deepen, learn, and embody transformation towards your goals.
On the final day, you’ll ask yourself, what’s changing in you?
As we get clear on how to take all that we have learned out into our daily lives, we will make plenty of space for gratitude and celebration.
This course is for anyone who will learn how to apply principles of embodied leadership to help you develop a more powerful leadership presence where you can stay open, present, and connected under conditions of complexity and ambiguity.
When you participate in this course, you not only acquite personal competances but also skills that can greatly benefit your company or organization.
