Your tone, energy and presence are key in inspiring others. On a plane we assess the voice of the pilot; a calm, confident voice reflects an ability to respond well to turbulence. Embodied leadership is also tested in times of turbulence; leaders are judged by their grace under fire – an ability to maintain self-control, communicate effectively and maintain trust.

This online masterclass provides a toolkit for centring yourself, so you can embody leadership in an authentic way. You’ll learn how to deal with turbulence in meetings, to stay centred around difficult people and take this mindful, embodied practice forward.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the event you will have:

  • learned to centre and ground yourself before calls, allowing you to speak with power
  • found the balance between strength and warmth that is so key to great leadership and helps you connect on screen
  • learned tools to project your energy and to own virtual meetings so your audience is motivated to act.
