Our services, practices and disciplines

If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.

Daniel Goleman

The Hogan suite of assessment tools measure personality characteristics, risk of career derailment, core values, and cognitive style. The Hogan Derailer assessment provides the strategic self awareness to avoid derailing your career. This process involves an in-depth discussion about your self, your career aspirations, strengths, development areas and your assessment findings.

A detailed report is then prepared with development recommendations included.

Mediation is a confidential, voluntary and informal process that helps parties to talk issues through and to find a way forward. Mediation helps people find practical solutions that feel fair to everyone. We work in partnership with our clients to evolve and deliver resolutions that arise due to conflict in the workplace or in other domains.

360° feedback is a widely used approach for receiving structured feedback – it addresses many of the problems associated with receiving ad-hoc feedback which can be random or biased and much harder to turn into true behavioural insight. 360° feedback involves obtaining feedback from a range of people who know you well. It is called 360° because views are collected from people in several different directions in the organisational structure (e.g. your boss, your colleagues, the people who report to you, and even yourself) – thus providing you with a 360 degree view of how you are perceived at work.

We are qualified in a number of tools including, The Leadership Circle Profile.

We go beyond feedback and provide development planning and follow up coaching if needed.

Having your attention where you want it and when you want it is energetic mastery

Lynda Caesara

Energy Basics are energetic skills. These skills enable and support you to be in your body, to be present, to set and manage boundaries and take care of energy hygiene (for those of us who easily absorb energy from others). We look at what energy patterns you run, your habitual patters of attention. Where your life energy and awareness moves through your your body, especially in times of stress or distress. We look at where your life energy and awareness is restricted and blocked. Where you armour or constrict your energy and your self. We look at the gifts and challenges associated with each of those energy patterns. We look at where and how you charge, recharge and loose your energy. We explore how your energetic patters affect and shape how you relate to yourself, to others and how you lead. We explore how the energetic patterns of others affect you, others and teams. We explore masculine and feminine energy and how that affects our energy levels, how we relate to others and how we lead.

Energetic Centering Practice builds the muscle and skill of being present, open and connected to what we care about. This practice builds presence, our ability to stay calm under pressure and allows us to remain connected to what and who matter most to us. Our centre is a place we can come back to again and again when we get triggered or are under pressure. Center restores the capacity for the long-term, higher functioning aspects of the brain big picture thinking, innovation, creativity and intuition.

Atelier of Being partners with clients to help them cultivate a centered state of being.

Atelier of Being has evolved Somatic Practices and Atelier of Being Bodywork practices for these energy patterns.

All of our Energy Mastery work may be supplement with energy orientated products. (Building on Lyndas Caesaras work and that of Steven Kessler (and many others such as Wilhelm Reich and Alexander Lowen)

At Atelier of Being we work on as well as through and with the body. Applying our guiding principles of holistic innovation and interconnectedness we see the body as integral to any form of transformational growth and leading the self journey.

Based on Polarity Bodywork and innovated for the present pace and complexity we have developed a unique set of Bodywork practices called The Atelier of Being Bodywork Series.

Bodywork sessions typically last 60 to 90 minutes and take place with clients fully clothed lying on a bodywork table. Sessions are uniquely curated to each individual and are interconnected with coaching conversations, development plans, ongoing professional development, energy goals or whatever else our clients are working on or with. Atelier of Being partners with a number of Leadership Development Organisations and Coaching networks to offer bodywork.

If you change the way you organise your energy, you change the way you think

Wendy Palmer

Somatics derives from a Greek word which views the mind and body as interconnected, both being part of a living process called the Soma. The body/soma can be viewed as the domain of action, coordinating with others, learning, mood, emotions and dignity. Our soma represents the unification of our thinking, feeling, acting, perception and emotions. This differs from the traditional view that sees the body as a collection of parts. Our body is our interface with life. (Richard Strozzi, one of the worlds leading pioneers on Embodied Leadership and Somatic Coaching). Using physical practices we tune into the wisdom of the body. Practice are curated to align with individuals client needs.

Somatic Coaching enables the following and more;

  • Ability to shift from reactive reflexes to responsive choices.
  • Deep transformation, to move from an old historical shape to a new shape that better serves what it is you care about.
  • To take a stand and speak your truth, to speak up.
  • Understand how you respond under pressure. Do you move forward, lock or move back? Do you fight, flight or freeze?
  • Learn to make requests, to ask for what you need.
  • Learn to make declines, to say no, when and where you need to.
  • Understand your Conditioned Tendency, your automatic response under pressure. Conditioned Tendencys arise from our adaptations for safety, dignity and belonging. They reflect our histories and our habitual patterns. They reflect the primary way in which we organise our selves under stress or pressure.

By working with our Conditioned Tendancies we can do the following;

  • Change how we look at ourselves, others and the world around us.
  • Have new choices in the face of pressure, stress and conflict.
  • Develop new possibilities for the future.
  • Increase our capacity to interact with others and to develop stronger and more trusting relationships. Enables us to effectively co ordinate with others.
  • Deepen our capacity to listen to ourselves and others, as well as our compassion.
  • Become more powerful and effective leaders, power with and not over.
