Leadership Embodiment w/ Elizabeth Valentine

Cultivating Presence, Confidence & Compassion


To be an impactful leader, one must be conditioned in multi-faceted ways. In this 6-week series, we will learn to distinguish our patterns of engagement so that we can create a more inclusive, bold and centered vision for ourselves and the causes we seek to realize. We will deepen our capacity to respond skillfully under pressure and refine our personal and professional goals. Becoming more aware of our energetic, physical and neurological responses to stress, we will learn to “recover center” and generate the impact we seek. We cannot change our habits through the mind alone. Somatics and neuroscience continue to demonstrate how physical posture, breath and the way we carry ourselves influence our thinking and the environment around us every day.
