Centeredness is essential to effective leadership. It provides the space in which we choose how to respond, rather than automatically reacting to a situation. In this space we find the time and awareness to bring our inspirational leadership skills to bear.
How do you get to a place of responding instead of reacting?
It is not easy, and a completely cognitive approach—which we’re often inclined to use in business—cannot work. Instead, you need to engage all parts of your brain to become centered. We call this The Science of Centeredness.
Given this challenge, we developed a simple, structured way of engaging all parts of the brain to help us be more present in everyday working situations and respond thoughtfully.

Other methods for centering:
- Breathing deeply
- Naming a feeling
- Asking yourself: “What’s the worst that could happen?”
- Getting up from your computer and stretching your legs
