Embodied Leadership Presence: Authentic Impact from the Inside Out

Case Western Reserve University
Weatherhead School of Management

Executive Education
Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019 from 9am to 4:30pm
at Dively Bld, CWRU
Cleveland, OH

Our leadership presence, embodied intelligence and body language communicate much more than our words convey. Our first language is body language, and its impact is profound. Our body language sends, receives, and deciphers a myriad of nonverbal cues, signs and signals. Bringing our attention to this level of communication gives us immeasurable insight, and helps us decode the real meaning beneath spoken words to determine what is really going on with and between people. It also provides us with a deeper awareness of ourselves, allowing us to develop an authentic leadership presence. From this deeper awareness comes the ability for deep listening, solid thinking, insightful reflecting, and effective responding.

In this program, through presentation, experiential learning opportunities, and exploration of their business challenges, participants will develop a better understanding of their leadership presence, embodied intelligence and body language and learn to confidently apply that self-knowledge in all aspects of their lives.

Instructor: Jackie Stevenson
Date: Tuesday, November 5, 2019
Time: 9am to 4:30pm


What is "embodied presence" and why is it important?

  • The power of leadership presence, embodied intelligence and body language through the alignment of who you are and what you communicate
  • Understanding how we and others are perceived through the map of five archetypal body structures and ways of being
  • Effective decision making through embodied leadership presence
  • Living more deeply in the world using the senses for genuine listening and responding
  • Presence as the act of responsibly entering into meaningful dialogue, vital interactions and genuine relationship with others
  • Leadership presence as the informed decisions we make and the actions we take

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this program, participants will:

  • Learn how to stand strong in the midst of chaos and agile in response to new ideas, diverse perspectives and unanticipated change
  • Gain insight into their embodied presence and body language to better understand the non-verbal messages they are giving and receiving
  • Develop a deeper understanding of their leadership presence, body language, body structure and embodied communication
  • Determine a more reliable outcome between what they intend to communicate and influence and what is actually received
  • Build on the strengths and explore the challenges of their personal presence to benefit in practical ways
  • Engage in resonant and meaningful dialogue through embodied presence as a way to create a desired field of collaborative and cooperative influence

  • This is an opportunity to expand your perspective through a deeply experiential and practical program. Learn how to mobilize yourself, your team and whole organization to make a “conscious” transformation. By engaging in real conversations, together we will:

  • Increase our capacity to address the growing complexity of the world today and tomorrow

The pillars of Conscious Capitalism have defined a new imperative for how businesses will thrive in the 21st century. Organizations with a purpose beyond profit, and able to create that experience for their people, communities and the environment will out-perform and outlast their peers. As our awareness increases, the business case is clear. Leaders recognize what kind of changes are needed.

Co-led by Andy Powell, Jackie Stevenson, and Sally Parker, a seasoned team of business leaders, change practitioners and executive coaches.

Hope to see you there!
