Beyond Doing: Essential Skills for the 21st Century Leader
Learning Lab

Presenter: Dr. Chris Johnson


Date: September 14

Track: Show Up as a Leader

About the Session

Twenty-first-century leaders require a broader skill set to act with flexibility and agility in ever-changing, complex environments.

For leaders to transform stress into deep resilience, and create opportunities out of the unexpected, requires a new way of being, a new ‘self.’ This essential move from doing to being requires Embodied Leadership skills.

This interactive session, grounded in somatic intelligence, focuses on a body-mind approach that enables participants to experience the body as a source of intelligence, power, and wisdom.

By working with embodied patterns of perception and behavior, leaders can train to shift from reactive to responsive, allowing them to become fully present, embody their vision, and build trust.

Learning Objectives

  1. Access the intelligence of the mind/body system to transform pressure and stress into resilience and ease.

  2. Learn and practice the power of a pause to build a more powerful leadership presence.

  3. Generate moods of trust, respect, and dignity.
