Welcome to the ICF Toronto's VISION 2020 Virtual Experience session featuring Amanda Blake.
Who Will Heal the Healer? Reflections on the Coach as Caregiver
Our capacity for courage, vision, resilience, connection, and leadership all have neurobiological roots. Research shows that emotional intelligence sets apart the successful and satisfied from the frustrated and struggling. But few people realize that our emotional and social intelligence emerge out of our somatic – or embodied – intelligence. That is great news, because it gives us a concrete path to train ourselves to embody vital life skills, such as a powerful presence, grace under pressure, and the ability to inspire others and resolve conflict. Just as we can build bigger biceps by lifting weights, we can train for greater resilience, better communication, and more influential leadership by tapping the wisdom of the body. In this session, we will explore how embodied practices can transform your coaching – and your clients' lives.
Amanda Blake is the author of the award-winning book, Your Body Is Your Brain, and creator of the Body = Brain course on the neurobiology of experiential leadership learning. In addition to teaching about the art and science of embodiment, she works with progressive leaders worldwide to help them become their best self, enjoy life more, and make a bigger contribution.
