Texas - Leadership Embodiment Workshop

Texas - Leadership Embodiment Workshop

Dallas, Texas (map)

We live in a culture that privileges the rational mind while tending to dismiss the somatic, emotional, and unconscious aspects of ourselves as irrelevant or counterproductive to intelligence. From a Western model, we feel we should have the mental fortitude to think our way out of stressful situations. Advances in biology and neuroscience have started to provide solid scientific evidence for why this is simply not possible. Each of us has a unique personal pattern or fingerprint for how we handle stress. During this program, you will explore your patterns under mild stress and how centering provides an alternate perspective. You will learn to acknowledge and become friendly with your reactive patterns. You will also be able to quickly shift from a reactive state to a more skillful and resourceful way of being. When we are centered and mindful, we automatically act with wisdom, compassion, and power.

This event complimentary for all SIBF members and guests, limited to 20 attendees.

This session was originally scheduled as part of the first session of the 2017 SIBF Academy. Due to an injury, Maryellen Myers was not able to attend the session. She agreed to reschedule and offer the session to all SIBF members, guests, and prospective members.

We started the process at our session in Alexandria. Now it is time to build on the self-discovery and continue to further our exploration. Discover or reconnect with your passions and explore how you can use them to articulate your purpose for yourself.  Brainstorm about the possibilities and use your ideas to create potential visions for your future to explore further. 

Concepts will be introduced in a series of very brief webinars, which will be recorded for those that missed the live session.  Participants will be asked to engage in self-discovery, connect with a partner to create accountability, and share ideas within the group.

SIBF Leadership Academy - Session 2

SIBF Leadership Academy - Session 2

Stone Mountain, GA (map)

The individual curriculum for both sessions of the SIBF Leadership Academy has been thoughtfully developed to offer a broad spectrum of opportunities to investigate innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship. World-class business coaches and global business executives with proven expertise serve as session instructors for the plenary sessions. In addition, a select group of experienced international business professionals serve as facilitators; two or three facilitators manage participant Learning Groups and lead the conversations that deepen and extend learning and personal growth. The underlying credo for the Academy is that everyone is a teacher; each participant is expected to share personal knowledge and experiences as they assimilate each session’s lessons.
 

Session 2: Atlanta, Georgia  -  August 27-31, 2017

Both sessions are required and participants will remain in contact to work on individual business projects between sessions 1 and 2.
