Research shows that emotional intelligence sets apart the successful and satisfied from the frustrated and struggling. But few people realize that our emotional and social intelligence emerge out of our somatic – or embodied – intelligence. Our capacity for courage, vision, resilience, connection, and leadership all have neurobiological roots. That’s great news, because it gives us a concrete path to train ourselves to embody vital life skills, such as a powerful presence, grace under pressure, and the ability to inspire others and resolve conflict. Just as we can build bigger biceps by lifting weights, we can train for greater resilience, better communication, and more influential leadership by tapping the wisdom of the body. In this session, we'll explore how embodied practices can transform your coaching – and your clients' lives. Want a preview of what's in store for you?

3 Key Takeaways:
  1. Practices and exercises coaches can use with their clients.
  2. Neuroscience behind how embodied coaching works – essential information for understanding what’s happening “under the hood” & helping skeptical clients get on board.
  3. Deeper embodied self-awareness, leading to greater self-development & presence for the coach.
