Some of the fundamental skills and qualities required of our coaching clients (often leaders in their organisations) to meet today’s business/organisational challenges include:
• Ability to be calm under pressure BUT also decisive when necessary
• Being courageous, BUT also being careful
• Demonstrating authenticity, gravitas and presence
• Ability to motivate and communicate well with diverse groups/types of people
• Ability to be collaborative and to engender engagement and collaboration from others
• Be visionary and strategic WHILST ALSO being able to respond rapidly and creatively to emerging opportunities
• To be highly resilient: They are expected to maintain their own energy and health to drive and sustain team or organisational performance in a 24/7, volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
A common factor of all of these qualities is that they are largely not technical or purely intellectual skills. As a swathe of recent mind-body neuroscience findings are now corroborating, they are all, to a greater or lesser extent, embodied skills.
Embodied skills require the leader to have an enhanced awareness of themselves, their emotions, stressors and internal process and how this affects their relationships, their ability to think clearly, their own performance and how this also impacts, positively or negatively, their teams and the wider organisation.
As coaches therefore, we need to learn how to develop and indeed model these embodied skills and qualities.
Key outcomes of the workshop:
• Greater awareness of how our own embodied experience (our posture, our feelings, our breathing and tensions etc) can inform us about what’s going with ourselves, our client and also the wider group and system.
• Increasing our ability to read our clients ‘real’ communication and body language.
• Increased emotional intelligence and ability to respond appropriately in the face of powerful emotions in our client such as sadness, anger, overwhelm etc
• Specific Somatic Cognitive coaching skills, facilitation techniques and interventions
• An ability to create deeper, sustainable, changes with our clients and teams
• How to help our clients enhance their resilience and manage their stress and energy better and also manage our own stress better.
• How to notice when we are ‘triggered’ by a client or group and how to recover ourselves (create a more resourceful state) in the moment.
• How our body (or our client’s body) often holds onto old, unresourceful habits (patterns), frequently outside of conscious awareness and how to begin to change this.
• How our embodied experience ‘brings to life’ notions of meaning, purpose, culture and creativity in individuals and organisations
• Learning the basic embodied types and their day-to-day effect on our well-being and effectiveness
• Working particularly with expansive and overly defined or ‘rigid’ clients.
• How to work effectively in creating sustainable changes with commonly requested, coaching client requirements such as ‘develop greater presence’, ‘project more gravitas’, ‘manage the impact I have on others’. ‘enhanced confidence’. All classic Somatic Cognitive coaching challenges!
• How to translate these ideas into language that is understood and accepted by our clients and generally to work with this awareness in an organisational/business context without seeming weird!

Previous participant’s comments:
‘Excellent workshop, I now know what to do when I notice bodily shifts in my client which previously I saw and ignored’
‘I just finished writing up my notes from our 2 days and realised how much I had learned / relearned – hopefully in an embodied manner… Anyway I just wanted to say thank you. It was brilliant’.
‘Transformational for me (I appear to have a body!).. and I used the accordion ( a somatic cognitive technique) with a client the following week and it was transformational for them too. Thank you so much.’
‘I’m far more aware of myself and what I’m feeling in my facilitation work and also what’s going on in the team and more able to call it now..’
FAQ’s from recent Somatic Cognitive webinars and sessions:
Q: Does this require hands on work?
A: No, this isn’t necessary and is often inappropriate in a coaching context.
Q: Is this the same as Mindfulness?
A: No, though many Mindfulness practices are a really useful way of enhancing our Somatic Cognitive awareness and connection. Also, some elements of Somatic Cognitive practice are in essence Mind-fulness practice.
Q: Does this approach work with highly intellectual, rational clients?
A: Yes. Arguably this approach is crucial for such clients, especially if they are wrestling with relational or emotional challenges (in themselves or their colleagues) which no amount of further, ‘disconnec-ted’, thinking will solve. As Einstein said: ‘Problems created by one level of thinking cannot be solved by the same level of thinking’. The different level of thinking required is in their bodies!
Q: Is this the same as using emotional intelligence?
A: yes and no. In as much as the common term ‘emotional intelligence’ speaks to something that is part of our broader overall somatic functioning; yes. However, ‘emotional intelligence’ is not a separate thing from our overall intelligence; our overall thinking is inextricably linked to and generated by our whole body’s state.
