Embodied Leadership Level One
Formerly Leadership in Action One
4-Day Course and Webinar Series
California | Barcelona
Course Description
Embodied Leadership Level One is the first course in our Embodied Leadership Pathway. It builds the foundation that powerfully aligns your vision with daily practices to embody your leadership. In this course, you create a declaration, or statement of vision, toward a future that you want. What is your commitment to your future? What do you really want? What in your life and leadership is working for you, and what isn’t?

Through a series of somatic practices, you learn how to stay centered in your commitment. By exploring your conditioned tendencies—the habitual actions that you’ve learned in the past—you will empower yourself to make new choices in your life, even under the same old pressures.   

The Strozzi Institute’s 45-year old somatic methodology combines elements of mindfulness, action-oriented communication, martial arts, bodywork, and neuroscience to produce sustainable change. This transformative course creates leaders who embody the virtues of authenticity, integrity, accountability, confidence, and a centered presence. Through embodiment, you powerfully become your vision.

"We wanted a game changer for accelerating our high performing teams and our leadership team. I've worked with a lot of different leadership programs and the Strozzi Institute’s is the one that works. It was dramatically different than anything I had experienced before. It's their ability to connect the mind, language, action, and the body into sustainable practices. And we were able to see actual true change in a very short amount of time. It deeply resonated with our teams in a meaningful and authentic way."
- John Pershing, SVP HR Ascena Retail Group
"I loved it! It was very profound and subtle at the same time. The execution and the team has been the most professional I have ever seen. Humanity, values, care, love were always at the foreground. I feel humbled and grateful to have been part of this experience."
- Tania Fichtner, Director at Tajo Consulting (Mexico City, Mexico)
