Make a Centered Impact:

Moving Past Projection and Building Sustainability in Your Leadership

A LIVE 4-hour workshop with B Stepp
Friday, May 3, 10am-2pm PDT

Dear Leader,

Wait — feel that for a moment.

What is a leader, to you?

Is it someone who has power? 

Someone who…leads?

Maybe a particular person or personality comes to mind… strong, visionary, self-sacrificing…

What if being a leader is none of these things? 

What if who you are as a leader is a function of your longing, and not your idea of who a leader should be?

(And not anyone else’s projected idea of who a leader should be either!)

The truth is, all our ideas about leadership too often cause us to show up in ways that are not aligned with what we care about. 

And we are not just trapped in our own ideas: our colleagues, our teams, and the leaders we follow can ALL project their ideas about leadership onto us.

And there’s a high cost.

Like burning ourselves out, because we have a cultural story that it’s what good leaders do…

Or making decisions all alone, because that’s the expectation we feel from others…

It doesn’t have to be this way.

When your leadership comes from your centered longing, grounded in your felt sense of your own body — and not from ideas or projections — it becomes your unique, beautiful offering. You are able to produce change in the world by extending your aliveness into it.

You make a centered impact.

And instead of being trapped in who others believe you should be, you can learn the skills to work with their projections in a generative way…or simply let them pass you by!

That’s what Strozzi Institute for Somatics teacher B Stepp can teach you in their LIVE workshop on May 3rd. 

In this 4-hour online gathering, you will: 

  • Learn what receiving a projection feels like in your body so you can name what’s going on and start to work with it
  • Feel what choices are available to you under the pressure of projection so you can expand your range as a leader
  • Feel the difference between a centered extension of your aliveness versus an off-center extension so you know what to look for in your body in the moment
  • Learn a somatic practice for letting a projection go by you so you know how it feels and can grow stronger at it

We look forward to seeing you there!
