Leadership Through Your Body
From pressure to power

2 days of immersive learning and your first steps towards a lifelong journey of transformation. 


Become an Embodied Leader

We know a lot about the “what” that is needed for great leadership. 

But figuring out how to embody those qualities, particularly under pressure is much more complicated.


Discover the power of leadership embodiment and learn pragmatic practices that will help you increase presence, clarity and impact under pressure, connecting personal meaning with powerful leadership behaviours.

Embodied learning means knowledge is retained and utilized not only from a cognitive understanding, but from a felt experience through the body. This felt experience means that you will be able to take new actions aligned with your values and vision, even under the same old pressures. 

This program is offered in french or english

What you will learn

This is NOT another “tips and tricks” approach aiming to increase leadership skills in a short period of time.

This workshop is a self-exploration journey designed to:

  1. Develop leadership presence by leveraging the links between body, brain, and behavior.

  2. Increase impact and influence on your teams, peers and bosses.

  3. Use conflict as a generative force

  4. Learn to owe your state of mind, how you feel and how you approach problems in order to act skillfully and meaningfully even in times of troubles.

  5. Build a powerful leadership declaration that will move you towards the future that you want as a leader of your life and your organization.

  6. Take actions aligned with your value, even under pressure

  7. Explore and engage into life practices that create impact and well-being.

The methodology

Manu’s Leadership development approach goes far beyond traditional approach to leadership development (mainly focused on conversation). It teaches how to use mind, emotion and body in service of the leader’s transformation.

Somatic coaching is a unique approach where concepts are introduced and then experienced through embodied practices; the result leads to sustainable transformation through new actions and behaviours that are more aligned with what you care about.
