WalkingKata Coaching

Leadership is a full body, contact sport.

I coach people who want the resilience and perseverance to keep moving themselves and their dream forward even in the face of adversity and ambiguity. I use continuous improvement kata, somatic awareness and mindfulness combined into actionable, digestible skills so you can perform any activity you chose at a high level and in a way that works with your desire and neurobiology.

We can walk together, meet on zoom or at my teaching studio.

Specialized Workshops in

StrengthsFinder

Personal and team training in the StrengthsFinder and CoreClarity systems so you can learn how you’re built and how best to leverage yourself. The #3 reason startups fail is because it’s the “wrong team.” I think more often it’s a team that doesn’t know how to work together. This facilitates understanding your strengths so that you can lead well and build a complementary team around you.

Training includes:

  • Making sense of your talents and strengths in a memorable, understandable, applicable and actionable way

  • Background of strengths psychology and how to take it from theory to practice

  • Deep dive into the 34 CliftonStrengths (formerly StrengthsFinder) and how they work together

  • Interactives exercise to understand and leverage your talents and strengths

  • Understand why experiences drain you or build energy and how to manage yourself

  • Experience how your talents are currently working for or unintentionally against you

Communication

Effective communication is about the relationship you build with the collaborator or audience. This workshop skill-builds self-awareness of your whole self -- body, mind, nervous system and attention -- so you can share a compelling message in a believable way and affect the change you seek. Bring something you’d like to work on (from pitching, leading a meeting, difficult conversation, etc).

Managing Yourself and Other Whole People

This is an experiential workshop to learn how to move forward efficiently. The brain works on YES and you’ll learn how to build, experiment and test your goals in a way that works with your neuroplastic brain and its desire.

Full body acupressure to the bone, Zero Balancing balances body energy with body structure, to create a sense of calm and thriving. 

Neuromuscular Therapy

Whether you're experiencing pain from climbing a mountain or recovering from a car accident this is advanced clinical work that brings the overall system back into balance and coordination.

Intraoral Massage and the Whole Breathing System

This is delicate work with intraoral muscles and structures that can reduce headaches, effects of whiplash, falls or dental work. If you clench or grind you teeth of if you’re a musician for whom breathing plays an important role, this work is incredibly supportive. Many singers come to me specifically for this work and are bewildered at other massage therapists not offering it.

Abdominal / Belly / Visceral Therapy

Calming and gentle work to improve overall health particularly digestive systems. There is as much “brain” in the belly as there is in the cranium and it plays a vital role in your overall mental and physical health. The abdomen creates 90% of our serotonin (aka the happy hormone) and is essentially the "front" of your low back. This is critical infrastructure that supports your consciousness and health.
