In this episode, I am joined by William Walker, a coach and entrepreneur who works with individuals, teams, and organizations to develop sustainable practices that meet with their specific circumstances. William’s coaching is integrally informed, developmental, and authenticity-driven and helps his clients constantly inquire into what is happening right now in their lives and what the best actions are to take based on that knowledge.
In the interview, William guides us in an “embodiment practice” that he uses in his own life and with his clients. He then talks about how this practice, and other practices meant to cultivate presence, can help in practical ways in our life and leadership. We spend quite a lot of time in the interview practicing and talking about presence. I encourage you to actively participate in the practices as we walk through them in the interview.
Towards the end of the interview, William and I talk about co-hosting a follow up call for people interested in asking questions, sharing, and continuing the conversation. If you are interested, please contact me on my website at http://www.fullyintegratedleadership.com
