Leadership can be cultivated by anyone.

More than a position, being a leader calls us to practice ways of being that catalyze collective action toward a shared vision. Yet two obstacles hamper most leadership learning approaches: they use mental frameworks to address habits, patterns, and behaviors that are held in the body; and the information is conveyed in environments unlike our everyday situations. As a result, we often find it difficult to translate our best intentions into how we show up as leaders.

Combining training for the heart-mind with training for the body-mind, this workshop presents another way. Third Way methodology teaches self-diagnostic tools and practical skills that can be applied in the moment and over time to take our leadership capacity to the next level.

We learn to use the power of centering presence to exhibit grace under pressure, manage personal energy, and listen without taking things personally. We go beyond mind-only practices that leave patterns of ancestral, generational, and day-to-day anxiety intact. We tap into the deep wisdom of our bodies to develop positive boundaries, increase self-awareness, and release unwanted behaviors with self-compassion and humor.
