Insight and knowledge don’t often produce lasting change on their own. Why? Because learning takes place throughout your whole self. To make it stick, you need to use your whole neural network, not simply your mind and cognitive understanding. Embodied learning moves the locus of change and learning into the body, giving you access to all aspects of your intelligence—intellectual, emotional, and physical.
As you create new patterns and new neural pathways through embodied learning practices, you become able to listen more effectively, learn new skills quickly, and be more inclusive and generative in conflict situations. Not only do you start achieving the outcomes you want—as a leader, coach, or team—but you start experiencing life differently because you are living, feeling, and moving in new ways.
You become an embodied leader—able to align your actions with your vision and values to make lasting change.
