Leadership Resilience

Judo teaches powerful lessons to Leaders facing turbulent times

The Challenge:  Strong Executives, Uncertain Terrain

  • Pressure to deliver results against a backdrop of competing forces
  • Accountability for personal excellence and team results
  • Leveraging resources to address conflicting priorities when demand exceeds supply

The Need:  Tools and know-how to refresh and maintain the effective edge as an individual and as a leader of others

The applied lessons learned in this program about leverage, creating space, and teamwork were invaluable to my employees and to my firm’s success in the marketplace.

The Intervention: Judo for Leaders by a Leader

  • Over a 3-4 hour period, barefoot participants dressed in kimonos work individually and in teams to learn basic judo skills while acquiring powerful metaphors to enhance personal leadership resilience.
  • This is a “come as you are” workshop.  In fact, it is an essential element.  No prior capability in Judo or exceptional physical skills is expected or required.  Safety and success is assured for all ages, fitness levels and abilities in this workshop.
  • While experiencing  physical and mental assets literally, participants will learn to apply that insight to leadership for:
    • sustaining focus
    • creating space separate from the competition
    • acting on intuition
    • leveraging strengths in individual awareness
