Black sheep experiences

Are you ready for the challenge? Let's face it together!

I became aware of how I unconsciously protect myself from direct contact with another person by avoiding eye-contact and I realised how that reduces my opportunities for authentic connection and meaningful co-operation...

I learned to say no confidently, calmly and without offending the other and I understood that the ability to draw boundaries without fear of losing connection is the key to stress management for me ...

I understood the relationship of my body and my unconscious behaviour through the exercises in the dojo. My body was leaning forward slightly and I was constantly rushing to the next exercise. I felt that busyness draining my energy and preventing me from truly being present to situations and to other people ...

The pad exercise put me in contact with my raw power for the first time in my life. I had the feeling that have the capacity to face any obstacle and defend what is important to me. It was a deeply moving and empowering experience ...

When complexity and speed of change increase, your success as a leader depends on your capacity to embody:

Themes covered during coaching

  • Committing to your growth. A commitment to meaningful change is the motivator that gives direction for your embodied leadership practice.
  • Deepening awareness of your body. When you are in contact with the life and sensations of your body you come across as authentic and trustworthy.
  • Opening conditioned behaviours. Undoing automatic behaviours that harm your ability to collaborate creates space for new possibilities.
  • Creating new capacities that serve your commitments. Regular practice enhances your capacity to stay present and act skilfully even in difficult situations.

Embodied Leadership Coaching enables you to

  • be present in a way that reflects integrity, openness and authenticity
  • take a stand for what you care about without arrogance and aggression
  • create and maintain moods that catalyse commitment and collaboration
  • co-ordinate effectively with others
  • stay calm and balanced under pressure
  • establish and maintain trust
  • relate to others with grounded compassion
  • leverage conflict as an opportunity for renewal and growth of the whole community

Embodied leadership coaching enriches the capacities of the body to stay present and act skilfully under pressure by reprogramming automatically triggered patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us.
