Embodied Training for Coaches, Trainers, Consultants and HR Professionals

Embodied Training for Coaches, Trainers, Consultants and HR Professionals

Friday 17th January 2014, 10am-5pm

With Francis Briers of Integration Training

Our posture, movement and breathing determine what we think, how we feel and what we achieve. Our physical ‘embodied’ presence also affects how we engage with and are perceived by others. In fact, most aspects of our work, communication and relationships are embodied.

This is a practical experiential taster session for those who wish to develop these skills in a business or general work context.

What you’ll learn:

  • How the body influences our impact
  • How to work with the body confidently and safely
  • Practical embodied tools you can use the next day with clients
  • About yourself – what is hidden that is limiting your work
  • About others – how their bodies may be impacting their work
  • Applications within leadership, stress/change management, team building, coaching and communication training
  • Practices to develop leadership impact and influence – for yourself and your clients
  • Techniques to manage pressure, complexity and change, and to develop greater emotional intelligence
  • How to better ‘read’ others and employ your intuition
  • Tips on how to make this work accessible and relevant within a no-nonsense business environment

Who this workshop is for:

  • Business and life coaches
  • Business trainers, facilitators and consultants
  • HR professionals interested in exploring embodiment
  • Organisational leaders and heads of department
  • Teachers looking to explore a different domain of learning
  • Yoga, dance and martial arts teachers looking to apply their skills to mainstream markets
  • Therapists and alternative health practitioners
  • Anyone looking to develop their individual leadership or grow as a person
