Leadership Revisited: leading with mind, heart and body (2)
This event is an interactive journey of discovery of what embodied cognition means for leadership, opening participants’ senses to themselves as well as others. Based on research into leadership, followership, communication and embodied cognition, it takes a new look at ‘thinking on our feet’: We think with our bodies as well as our brains, as cognitive processes are at least in part based on physical experiences of the body. Based on the facilitators’ work with managers and health professionals, this workshop explores a different way of learning about leadership and followership: participants discover their own leading or following style – how we lead with the whole body, not just the brain, giving new insight on how we interact with others. We will use hands-on, practical exercises, based on dance, to look at how we lead and how we follow - and what we expect from leaders and followers respectively. Join in and experience, explore and experiment in a safe, fun environment where participants can push their boundaries and not worry about looking silly!
