What is Whole Body Leadership ™

This coaching work utilizes neuroscience research from how our body, our brain, and our behavior are deeply connected. In my coaching process I teach my coaching clients to apply these insights to help them:

  • Grow self-awareness through better awareness of what is happening in their bodies (what is a trigger for them, what happens when stress and fear take over, what are moments of fulfillment for them when strengths and purpose are present).
  • Learn how to recover from triggers by using their whole body so they can be more at choice about their behaviors rather than letting derailing behaviors impact their leadership.
  • Discover new ways of having “presence” and confidence using their body and “being” to impact their non-verbal communication in leading themselves and others.

Together these practices learned and practiced during the coaching engagement become habits and work to create sustained results for clients and a deeper sense of authenticity, personal power, and fulfillment.

    I was very moved by this brief but informational podcast you posted. I am a doctoral student in nurse practice and will be doing my dissertation on transformational leadership and its impact on new nurse leaders. I also want to explore authenticity and vulnerability into my study. I was wondering if you have any suggestions on an approach to my study.

      Hi Joann – I am sorry I am just now responding to your request. I just saw this. I am not an academic expert so unfortunately I don’t have any input for you on your study.

      I can say that transformational leadership is a great values-based way of leading people and is a great practice for nurse leaders (or any kind of leader).

      Wishing you great success in this dissertation.

    I can relate to these reactions within my body and have become VERY adept at recognizing symptoms over the past 8 years as a caregiver for my critically ill spouse. Learning to recognize and then manage the stress has been VERY beneficial.

      Hi Robin – I’m sorry to hear that your spouse is critically ill and I imagine that this is indeed stressful for you as a caregiver. I’m glad that cultivating deeper awareness of your body’s sensations and signals and being present with them is a source of destressing for you.
