Mindfulness Teacher • Speaker • Psychologist • Master Somatic Coach • Conscious Leader

Chris is a luminary leader, skillful somatic leadership coach, & engaging speaker.

As a transformational change agent, she’s living her calling – to lead powerful, agile leaders beyond their current successes to create conscious, thriving workplaces and communities. 

Doing Power Differently is a half-day embodied leadership intensive for professional women who want to energize their leadership and their impact without burning out.

 

Leadership involves determining what matters most and acting from there – whether guiding a family, running a business, or holding public office.

 

As women leaders, we’re in an excellent position to actively apply our power and skills to transform our businesses, homes, communities, and government in a manner aligned with our core values.

 

It turns out – not that you’ll be surprised – the competencies common among women such as empathy, flexibility, patience, intuition, and vulnerability are highly effective for managing and leading complex organizations.

 

Yet, so many of us give up on ourselves and on our power.

 

Instead we strive for some elusive book or TED talk or affinity group that will offer us that missing, magical key to empowering all  our endeavors. 

 

We work harder.  We take all the ‘right’ actions. We ‘lean in.’

 

We’re on it. Until we’re not.

 

Under pressure we fall back onto the same old habits that keep us in the same old groove. 

 

 

The power key’s has been here all along.

 

In Doing Power Differently: An Embodied Leadership Intensive, you’ll learn a more effective way—the body’s way.

 

No tips or tricks here. Instead, in this engaging and energizing session you’ll tap the wisdom of your body and intuition to consciously cultivate your Self as a leader. That’s the key.

 

Whether leading a corporate initiative or securing food for the hungry or running a nonprofit, the moves you make—quite literally–have a powerful impact on your team, your organization, your community. Do they reflect what matters to you most, or the same old habits that keep you from your power?  

 

The world is ready for a new expression of power – one that is innovative, inclusive, values-based, and embodied. One that lives within you.

 

The world is ready and in need of all our skills across organizations, causes, and communities. Truly doing power differently expands the possibilities not just for women, but for everyone.

 

The world is ready for you in your full power. 

 

For you, with fierce grace and love,

Chris L. Johnson, PsyD.

Are you ready to:

  • Engage in difficult conversations that are honest, productive, and equitable for all parties?

     

  • Start tapping your connections — to extend relationships, reward somebody when it’s deserved, and take a stand for something or someone in whom you believe?

  •  
  • Ensure that our businesses, families and organizations are receptive to a diversity of voices, in both tone and substance?

  • Take responsibility for your own mental, physical, and spiritual well-being to act from a place wholeness and abundance?

In this highly experiential workshop, Doing Power Differently, you’ll tap into your Core Presence™ (your personal space of power) to learn practices that embody your innate fullness, creativity, intelligence, and energy.

And, you’ll do so with your peers to extend your reach and support.

You’ll leave the day

able to: 

  • Center under pressure into Presence.

  • Engage in difficult conversations openly and effectively.

  • Receive powerful reflections from a highly skilled facilitator, and your peers, so you can understand, and not be surprised, by the feedback you receive.

  • Cultivate resilience as a resource to engage the ambiguity, complexity, and power of the world by learning how your own internal operating system really works to further your growth and impact.

  • Act on what matters most with confidence and conviction – able to take a stand for self and others.

  • Use your body as a wise resource for integrating thoughts, emotions, and actions (it’s a superpower!)

Working with Dr. Chris I have discovered some amazing things: I have come to know a person I never thought existed. I feel like magic has happened in my life.

Dr. Chris isn’t constrained by the pretenses of her profession. She is incredibly flexible and responsive, yet has challenged me to stand in my power and build my capacity as a professional.

Research shows that practices such as meditation, mindfulness, and embodiment practices develop our capacity to be present and open in difficult situations so that we can listen rather than react, so we can tend rather than defend. 

These are exactly the powerful skills necessary for you to make the most impact!   

This half-day workshop is for you if you’re:

  • Seeking greater influence and impact.

  • Willing to explore uncomfortable questions and embodied patterns and shift them into purposeful, powerful and joyful action.

  • Ready to move out of limiting beliefs, embodied patterns, and overwhelm to live fully, powerfully and mindfully for the greater good.

About Chris

I’m Chris Johnson, PsyD., founder of Q4 Consulting, Inc. and the Core Presence Institute™

I’m passionately committed to cultivating exemplary leaders, collaborative teams, healthy workplaces, and thriving communities.

I hold a doctoral degree from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, where my clinical focus has been healing trauma individually, in families, and in the workplace. And as a Master Somatic Coach and Certified Mindfulness Teacher, I’ve offered extensive programs to train attention and tap the body as a rich source of intelligence, wisdom, and action.

A key commitment of mine continues to be to extend embodied leadership into the marketplace, and to that end, I’m privileged to serve on the Executive Team for the Chicago Chapter of Conscious Capitalism as Chair of Learning & Practice.

When I’m not working, I’m likely either making art, gardening, reading a great book, or at the Aikido dojo practicing the art of peace.

Dr. Chris met me at a time of great personal and professional transition. She held me accountable to myself. The results? Chris helped me stake out a safe place to explore my newly emerging career path. And, she helped me to clarify a declaration for my future. I never dreamed I’d make such progress. I’d absolutely recommend Chris to anyone seeking to find their path.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I’ve never worked with Dr. Chris in one of her programs? Can I still attend the retreat?

We learn and grow through practice and repetition. Attending one of Dr. Chris’s workshops or learning series will jump start your learning, effectively preparing you for the Retreat. Visit the Events & Registration Page to see if there are other happenings you’re also interested in. That said, you can complete the questionnaire and share your interest and experience with Dr. Chris to ensure this retreat will meet your goals.

When should I arrive?

Check-in at Bella Vista Suites starts at 4:00pm on Thursday, October 17th.  An evening session begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Penthouse, followed by a reception. If you’d like, you can choose to arrive early to take advantage of autumn’s quaint and natural beauty in Lake Geneva. The front desk can hold your luggage until your room is ready. Or, you could come in the day before and book an extra night directly through the hotel.

Can I share a room with another attendee?

You could, though likely won’t want to! The basic retreat registration fee includes a king size, single occupancy room.

Will there be time to relax and recharge throughout the retreat?

Of course! Our schedule will include plenty of rest and reflection time, as well as flexible time for connecting in small groups or exploring the local area.

What should I pack?

We’ll have a complete packing list ready for you about a month before we meet up. But here’s the general gist: you’ll want to pack casual clothing in layers, as well as walking-around-town shoes. We will be exploring the Lake Shore Path so you might also want clothes and shoes comfortable for light hiking.
