School of Embodied Leadership
6-Day Immersive Leadership Course
Become a More Skillful, Impactful Leader
The School of Embodied Leadership is for for dedicated leaders who are ready to overcome obstacles and move their teams forward with decisive action, emotional maturity, and embodied vision.

In our forty years experience with training leaders, we’ve found that top leaders in their fields grapple with similar challenges. We empower leaders to work through them: 
  • "I'm indecisive and not fully confident in my actions as a leader."
  • "I want my entire team to show up collectively more confident and credible when it counts."
  • "I'm a high achiever at work, climbing the corporate ladder, but I want to find more purpose in my work."
  • "I want to leave something impactful when I move on from this company. What will my legacy be?" 
  • "I want to empower my teams to deliver higher quality work and generate actionable ideas."
We understand you. 

In the School of Embodied Leadership, students emerge with the practices and confidence to immediately upgrade their choices and actions as leaders.

This program is an intense training that will increase your endurance, strength, and flexibility—physically, mentally, and emotionally. The impeccability of this unification creates a leader who is capable of decisive action, emotional maturity, and embodied vision. 

The School of Embodied Leadership will dramatically increase your self-confidence and focus your talents into purposeful action.
