Morges – Embodiment for Leadership in Life with Mark Walsh

Our embodiment – 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 – yet this area is largely ignored by our culture which so often operates from the neck up.

Would you like your body to be something more than a clothes hanger and a brain taxi?

Join this practical, experiential workshop to develop your embodiment skills:

  • Get a deeper understanding of the relevance of body awareness, posture, movement and breathing to your work and well-being
  • Learn to work with the body confidently and safely
  • Improve your self-awareness – understand what is limiting you
  • Practice bodily leadership and influencing skills
  • Practice techniques to manage pressure and complexity
  • Learn how to better “read” others and employ your intuition
  • Get tips on how to make this work accessible and relevant within a no-nonsense business environment

“Not the type of course that comes in a folder to collect dust on your desk. I found the content real, accessible, and I was able to put it to practical use immediately.”

–   Kathryn Knock, Coach, Norfolk, UK

“I was impressed and inspired by the way which Mark conducted the day, he was like an orchestra conducter, leading people through the structure of the day with enough freedom in the form for people to explore and express themselves in meaningful ways. It was a wonderful day with a great mixture of learning,laughter and play,but related to the context in a serious way. He successfully steered us through experiences which gave people insights and understanding into embodiment and integrative methods of personal and collective practices, sharing how helpful it is to be aware and present, responsive to internal and external stimuli in creative ways…Mark is an exceptional trainer and I would thoroughly recommend him for his perceptive skill and responsiveness to the issues arising in the moment,he has a toolbag of techniques and methods which are accessible and useable in a variety of contexts, work,relationships and day to day living (LIFE!)…”

– Andy Griffiths – mindfulness and yoga teacher, UK

“These workshops connect your body to your mind and help to complete a soul circuit. Plug yourself in and enjoy more powerful coaching and facilitation.”

– Antony Parry, coach and CTI coach trainer, Chichester UK

“It is nothing else but amazing how much I learned about embodiment in only a day and a half with Mark and Carol in Berlin. Our bodies talk to us. All of the time. They hold the treasures of untold stories for our success and fulfilment. They demonstrate where our minds make up stories of failure and limitations. They, as an integral part of us, are the foundation for connection. Our bodies talk to us. We’d better start and listen to them.”

– Geert Hofman, coach, musician and author, Germany

“My participation enhanced my ability to talk about embodiment work, helped me gain confidence bringing this work to new audiences, and provided a very rich peer group experience that result in professional friendships”

–   Charlie Birch – professional dancer, Boulder, USA

“I now do in one session what I used to do in six”

– Coach and coach trainer, Tel Aviv, Israel

‘Great conducive trainer delivery style with a passion for the subject and an aptitude to keep things up-beat and varied to gain everyone’s interest. Everything from the ‘heart’ which is a big thing for me not just going through the motions. We are tough strong bunch and I got the impression everyone got something from yesterday’s session so THANK YOU! It was great and I’m looking forward to next session!’

– Kirstie Hawton, Training and Development Manager, Virgin Atlantic, UK (on a corporate embodied learning session)

‘This transcends the realms of the normal corporate training and lifts the lid to real insight and potential’

– Sue Bottomley, Leadership consultant and co-founder of the International Coaching Federation, London, UK

“If you’re looking for training that will challenge and provoke you to learn about yourself in profound and surprising ways, then I highly recommend Mark as a trainer. He is funny, provocative, committed and cheeky. Above all, though, he really knows his stuff, and he lives and walks his talk.”

– Aboodi Shabi, Executive Coach and Facilitator, Newfield coach trainer, London UK

“Mark is the rare trainer who manages to combine clear, strong leadership with a sense of very inclusive empathy, which enabled all the participants in the group to find their own space and feel welcome, whilst simultaneously motivating everyone to make the most out of the workshop. “

“The new insights in my own functioning and how Mark showed how to lead by example have been most inspiring and have led me to focus on my career and my life with a boost of energy and a sharper focus on my own qualities. “

Luuk van Huët, Tour Guide at Terra Tours, Freelance Writer, editor, translator and script doctor, Founding Father of the KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival
