As a high-achieving woman and a left-brained/logical/analytical person, I’ve been perfectly comfortable living and working from my head.

However, I’ve begun to realize over the past couple of years that leadership and coaching and, really, being human is about your heart.

My guest is Emily Rogers, a high-achieving woman who has learned to tap into her somatic wisdom and helps her executive coaching clients with that as well.

Emily had a very successful career as an executive in a high-profile role in a very male-dominaed industry.

And then one day her coach asked her, “What if you led with your heart?”

Emily resisted that for a while, until she recognized what a benefit that would be for her team and for herself.

Emily and I talk about:

  • Her career and the burnout it caused
  • Her passion for women in the workplace
  • The importance of somatic wisdom
  • How to get started listening to your body
  • Finding spaciousness
  • Why she decided to join our Thought Leader Academy and what she learned

As a business consultant, executive coach and retreat facilitator, Emily strategically advises and supports businesses, teams and individuals in growing and realizing their full potential in purposeful and balanced ways.
