    Embodied Intelligence for Leaders and Coaches Embodied Intelligence for Leaders and Coaches

    This workshop retreat is for leaders committed to becoming the best possible version of themselves, and for the coaches and facilitators who support them.

    Humankind faces unprecedented challenges to overcome if we, and planet earth, are to survive. Overcoming these challenges requires “future-fit” leaders with access to the whole of their intelligence – mind, body and spirit. Leaders who are comfortable with paradox, who act out of purpose, who recognise and address the fears that hold them back and who create learning environments within which others can grow and thrive.

    This workshop is for leaders and leadership coaches who are looking to become better able to thrive in the complexities currently challenging organisations and our world. Whether you are familiar with the ideas of complexity or just becoming acquainted, we will invite you to bring a personal challenge that you can work on while learning handy tools to help you explore the problem. By exploring the contexts in which we find ourselves, how we show up in them and act differently in them, we can make dramatic progress on challenges that we have been battling for some time.


I would say it is the most powerful professional development experience I have ever had, giving me tools to get and give more information. The concepts are simple and transformative.
