Henley Partnership: Masterclass – Gravitas: The art and science of grace under fire

This online masterclass provides a toolkit for centring yourself, so you can embody leadership in an authentic way. You’ll learn how to deal with turbulence in meetings, to stay centred around difficult people and take this mindful, embodied practice forward.

– Exclusive to Henley Partnership members –

Your tone, energy and presence are key in inspiring others. On a plane we assess the voice of the pilot; a calm, confident voice reflects an ability to respond well to turbulence. Embodied leadership is also tested in times of turbulence; leaders are judged by their grace under fire – an ability to maintain self-control, communicate effectively and maintain trust.

This online masterclass provides a toolkit for centring yourself, so you can embody leadership in an authentic way. You’ll learn how to deal with turbulence in meetings, to stay centred around difficult people and take this mindful, embodied practice forward.
