The Gathering for Change Agents: Pausing in the Space Between with Chris L. Johnson, PsyD.
September 7, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT
When you get triggered, are you able to pause
or do your triggered parts carry you away?
In this month’s The Gathering for Change Agents, Chris L. Johnson, PsyD., will lead an interactive session of discovering your own resilience and resources so that you can Pause to Work with Your Energy in the Space Between. No matter how much knowledge you acquire about your parts and patterns, it takes practice to be able to shift how you behave in those precious and fleeting moments. What you do in that pause can significantly shift the outcome of your interactions and your own well-being.
Chris will help us understand:
- Why it’s so hard for change agents to pause
- How triggers are the way into growth
- How our biology impacts our energy
- Why deliberate practice is essential
- What possibilities we’re missing when we don’t make space to pause
Come join this powerful edition of our 2022 theme: Dancing in the Space Between; Creating Resilience and Possibility in the Now. In this exploration of “catching ourselves being ourselves,” we’ll move through deep introspection, science, and humor to explore how we can work together more effectively and evolve in our community. We’ll also learn more about Chris’s upcoming 8-week course for busy professionals to calm the chaos. Learning these skills in our very complex and uncertain world is critically important and enhances our capabilities as “change agents.”
As a psychologist, Master Somatic Coach, and business owner, Chris L. Johnson, PsyD., is passionate about embodied learning and leadership, and leveraging it to cultivate strong business and community leaders, healthy workplaces, and engaged, thriving communities. She gets to spend her time creating learning opportunities and coaching folks to embody a more compelling presence, align their actions with what matters most to them, and to transform life’s high pressure stresses into opportunities for deeper connection and greater contribution with others and the environment. It’s the best learning gig around!
Chris’s new book, The Leadership Pause: Sharpen your Attention, Deepen Your Presence and Navigate the Future, is an eye-opening, accessible guide to developing one’s leadership via the deliberate, body-based practices that tap the wisdom and intelligence of the body. It’s a potent guide to embodying your best self, living into your purpose, and leading powerfully to build a better world.
