What Is Purpose Of The Summit?

Embodied Leadership is the new way of doing business and fostering leadership in our communities. Embodiment refers to the idea of fully inhabiting the fullest expression of ourselves in the world. When we are embodied, we are able to show up fully in our work and our lives, and tap into our true potential as individuals.

For entrepreneurs and leaders, embodiment is crucial for creating a business and a life that feels authentic and aligned with our values and purpose. When we are connected to our true selves we have better health outcomes, decrease in stress and burnout and overall happier in our relationships.

With 89% of people in the workforce experiencing some level of burnout in the last month, addressing mental & physical health in the workplace and community has become inescapable. Our workforce is evolving and in need of change. Our companies and communities are looking to gather and work in ways that respect the mind body connection. We know that women are more negatively impacted by the effects of chronic stress and burnout than men. Giving women concrete skills on how to elevate their voice, harness their power and increase their skill set will have a positive impact on our local community and businesses.
