As the founder of his own creative business 30 years ago, Joe Goode knows a thing or two about leadership. In any organization, leading others is complex and Joe has learned that, more than anything, transformative leadership is about being available and understandable to others.
Today's working world is increasingly ambiguous, complex, and fast-paced. This places great demand on workplace leaders. In this context, the default is to work from the head, to react with the intellect and logic. The practice of embodiment moves beyond the intellect and empowers you to lead from the whole self-using head, heart, and body as sources of intelligence.
This embodied workshop creates a space for you to slow down and notice in new ways. You'll examine how your innate mind/body connection allows you to connect more deeply with self and others, preparing you to lead with greater confidence, compassion, and courage.
This workshop teaches you:
- How to listen to the body and incorporate that knowledge into your communications and decision-making.
- Practices to support fuller expression as well as greater openness and availability to others.
- To develop a greater sensitivity to the environment and those around you, allowing for more empathy and deeper engagement.
- Tools to release the physical stress and anxiety that often prevent us from innovative big picture thinking.
This workshop is open to anyone interested in building leadership skills. No experience in dance or theater necessary.
Joe Goode is a choreographer, writer, and director whose first concern as an artist is to provide a "deeply felt, profoundly human experience" in the theater. He is widely known as an innovator in the field of dance for his willingness to collide movement with spoken word, song, and visual imagery. His work has been recognized with numerous awards including a New York Dance and Performance Award (a "Bessie"), and several Isadora Duncan Dance Awards ("Izzies"). Goode has also been awarded fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council and the James Irvine Foundation. He has been honored with awards for excellence by the American Council on the Arts, the Business Arts Council/San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and, most recently, with the "Heritage" award from the California Dance Educators Association. He is a tenured faculty member of the University of California, Berkeley in the department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies.
