In this 3-hour online workshop, you’ll engage with the fundamentals of embodied leadership to support you in a time of overwhelm and re-connect you to your sense of purpose as an academic leader. In this powerful process, you’ll explore your core values through embodied inquiry, and how these values form the foundation of your leadership. As you confront institutional challenges and limited resources in this time of the pandemic, you’ll learn tools to help regulate your nervous system and hold appropriate boundaries. The tools offered here can be implemented in your work immediately, but they’ll also sustain you in a more holistic process of embodied leadership.
- Receive and practice tools for regulating your nervous system during a time of overwhelm and social and political upheaval to promote collaborative and relational work environments.
- Engage in embodied inquiry about your core values and how to place them at the center of your life and work.
- Practice skills for holding healthy boundaries along with learning new ways of listening and engaging in conversations about race and intersectional oppression during a time of crisis.
