In our modern age, many of us go through life feeling disconnected from our own bodies and from one another. In addition to fueling conflict and other large-scale problems facing humanity today, this sense of disconnectedness can impair our ability to lead others. 

Born out of his lifelong interest in psychology, spirituality, and martial arts, Richard Strozzi-Heckler – our guest in Episode 97 of The MINDSet Game® podcast – made it his mission to help leaders achieve true transformation in their organizations and the world at large. As the author of several books and the founder of the Strozzi Institute, Richard has introduced numerous different ideas and practices to help individuals achieve “embodied leadership” in a variety of settings. In this episode, Richard shares:

  • The concept of somatics – which comes from the Greek word “soma,” or the living body in its wholeness – and how gaining an understanding of somatics can have an impact on individuals, organizations, and the world
  • How embodiment can improve your effectiveness as a leader
  • The power of verbal declarations – particularly one that states “I am a commitment” to something you’re seeking to create
  • The concept of conditioned tendencies, and why it’s important to become aware of your own conditioned tendencies and work on reversing those that are no longer serving you

Richard also guides us through a powerful centering exercise that you can practice at any time to become more present, open, and connected.
