Date: Sunday 2nd June & Monday 3rd June 2013 (postponed)
Venue: Hong Kong
With Mark Walsh of Integration Training, UK
Hosted by Emily Chan, Life Coach

What does the body have to do with who we are, the impact we make on others and what we are capable of in the world? An interactive workshop explores how posture and movement shape our personal leadership and teaches tools for life, so far little known in Asia.

What we think, how we feel and what we are capable of doing at work is determined by our bodies. How others perceive us, how we get along with them and what we are able to see in them is also bodily. In fact most aspects of work and human relationships are “embodied” as this is our primary “operating system”. Whatever we do is with a body, but most of us are educated from the neck up, but books and websites alone don’t give us the changes we might like.

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. Embodied training is a leading-edge approach which helps people build impact, influence and trust, by working non athletically with posture and movement. More than body language, embodied training works with who someone is and what they are capable of. Key embodied skills include self-awareness, the ability to “centre” under pressure and reading and empathising with others. Emotional intelligence is a part of embodied training and this has been shown to have a huge impact on career success.

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