When smart people get stuck, they turn to Amanda Blake to help them tap their next level of intelligence.

As a Master Somatic Leadership Coach, Mandy has devoted her life to the spread of one simple message: when you learn to access the smarts hidden in sensation, you open the door to more courage, connection, and contribution than you ever imagined possible.

She has been praised for her ability to facilitate pragmatic, profound changes for clients from Sydney to San Francisco to Istanbul. She holds a degree in Human Biology from Stanford University, and has taught leadership programs for the likes of Nike, NASA, and beyond.

When she’s not teaching people practical ways to leverage the links between body, brain, and behavior, you can find her swing dancing with her sweetie to corny country songs, backcountry skiing in the Sierras, or learning cool ninja tricks from her nephews.

Synopsis :
Mastering our Inner Game of Performance

How can individuals and teams consistently get in "the zone"?

Flow is an optimal state of consciousness, a peak state, where we both feel our best and perform at our best. We believe that flow can be nurtured in anyone, anywhere in the workplace, at home and in ourselves.

During this experiential session, Han Ee will walk us through the 4-stage Flow Cycle. We will identify the obstacles that hinder us from reaching our potential and identify the mindfulness–based triggers that will enable us to move beyond just “surviving” to thriving wherever we are. We will also discuss how this translates to teamwork and organizational development.

COP: Mastery in Coaching

Topic: In-Between the Line: Unconscious Knowing to Conscious Knowing

Dive Deep into the competency of Creating Awareness at the mastery level

To offer change that is truly transformational, coaches are expected to work at a deeper level with their clients and in this process it is inevitable not to deal with resistance. The real challenge is: Are these resistance serving the client's needs and wants? When clients narrate incident of frustration, blind to a self-defeating behavioral pattern that is discernible to the coach, the challenge is to bring that pattern into awareness in a manner that is evocative and rich in learning. This expansive space requires the coach to nurture the competency to ask powerfully and offer non-judgmental observation. This 2 hours workshop is created to support mature coaches to appreciate the dynamic interaction between listening and asking and how to integrate this understanding to heighten awareness and deepen the learning in the coaching process.
