I developed the term Body-Informed Leadership to describe the practice of being attuned to, and in conscious, skillful relationship with, the body’s signals as a means of practicing healthy interconnection at the deepest level in our group cultures.
I believe that practicing Body-Informed Leadership supports groups of all kinds to generate collaborative and inclusive group cultures from the inside-out.
Who is it For?
Body-Informed Leadership groups take participants on an experiential journey through the latest insights from neuroscience and embodied psychology to learn how the psyche, trauma, and states of consciousness take shape in their bodies and their group cultures.
Participants are supported to re-visit their cultures of origin through this lens, examining their histories, core assumptions, and deepest sensory stories – as well as the possibilities that exist to transform these stories from the inside-out.
Body-Informed Leadership groups teach the blueprint for compassionate, collaborative interconnection that is wired into our human physiology, as well as the set of core, body-based skills required to access it and embody its potential for leadership in group cultures.
Body-Informed Leadership groups are occasionally offered which relate to specific topics of group inquiry such as burnout, sacred activism, anti-racism and decolonization.
Evolutionary Organisations and Groups
Body-Informed Leadership fits tongue-in-groove with collaborative and Evolutionary approaches to group governance and structure. These formats rely upon members’ personal and interpersonal strengths to support enhanced creativity as well as the organisation’s ability to sustain connection through change.
Body-Informed Leadership supports organisations to develop these crucial personal and interpersonal strengths in an incremental, learn-able way.
The slogan of old was ‘it’s all about the numbers,’ or ‘it’s all about the economy.’ This school of thought is now giving way to a deeper recognition that it is actually ‘all about relationships.’ ~ Giles Hutchins
