Let's Get Physical: Training in
Embodied Leadership and Innovation

EMBODIED LEADERSHIP AND CREATIVE PRACTICE
Embodied leadership is the ability to integrate leadership values through deliberate physical practice.
Embodied Leadership responds to neuro-scientific advances, which show that the body is a fundamental factor in cognition and in the development of creativity. More than giving information about "what" is leadership and absorbing theoretical models, it focuses on "how" to lead in the practice, from the materiality of the body. Embodied Leadership has established itself as the most innovative solution in U.S.A. in the last 5 years and it is currently an emerging practice in Europe. In 2020 Forbes magazine dedicated the article "Embodied Leadership: A Cure For What Ails Us?" to the topic.
Our program Let's Get Physical, is a pioneer for its use of an original methodology based on movement-based acting techniques and for its specific focus on creativity and innovation.
Applying Acting-Based techniques as a methods of embodied learning, Let's Get Physical brings you closer to your body as an essential ally in your transformation and creation process. Embodied learning means that knowledge is retained and used not only from a cognitive understanding, but from an experience felt through the body. This felt experience means that your knowledge will generate new actions consistent with your values, even under pressure.

Neuroscience has shown that the body is a backbone of cognition.
Body language not only determines what we communicate - 80% of the information in a conversation comes from non-verbal action! - but it also informs our way of understanding others. The recent "mirror neuron theory" shows that we understand the thoughts, emotions and dispositions of other people by repeating them in the first person, in our body.
Furthermore, even more recent studies have shown that the involvement of the body and movement in learning is a decisive factor in the development of creativity.
Body movement increases myelin production and intensifies the neuronal interconnections responsible for imagination, the most important quality when creating.
Let's get physical integrates the techniques of physical theatre and holistic and creative somatic practices with the purpose of fostering embedded leadership that is focused on innovation.
