How can we prepare ourselves to be in community? How do we show up as our best selves in tense situations? In this hour of WTIP's series "Bringing Out the Best of Ourselves," we hear from Wendy Palmer, the founder of Leadership Embodiment, to learn more.
Wendy Palmer is the founder of Leadership Embodiment, a process that uses principles from the non-violent Japanese martial art of Aikido and mindfulness to offer simple tools and practices to increase leadership capacity and respond to stress and pressure with greater confidence and integrity. Wendy holds a sixth degree black belt in Aikido and has practiced mindfulness for over 40 years.
The three competencies of Leadership Embodiment focus on developing greater capacity to work with intensity. They are: being inclusive, listening for the whole, and speaking up clearly without aggression or collapsing.
Her coaching organization, Embodiment International offers Coach Training to experienced coaches and facilitators who wish to learn to coach leaders in Leadership Presence.
She has worked with executive teams and individuals for Twitter, Genentech, The Gap, NASA, Salesforce.com, McKinsey &Co, Oracle, Raytheon and The Daimler Chrysler Group. She is also an author of three books, The Intuitive Body and The Practice of Freedom, and a supporting CD and DVD. Her new book, Leadership Embodiment, is co-authored with Janet Crawford.
