One of my favorite leadership books: center, face, enter, extend, blend. Simple.

Recommends it for: Anyone in a leadership position
To summarize, being a good leader requires continual practice; mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual practice. As a leadership book it is atypical as the author brings together martial arts and eastern philosophy into the business world. Much like other books by this other, at the core are the importance of somatics. Good case study examples, interesting read.

THis was a good book that complemented my work with a leadership coach I was working with. The information is dense and will be the type of book that I will re-read frequently. If you are in a leadership roll or want to be in one then this book is a great tool to help you.

Fantastic content; I highlighted liberally. Writing style easy to access; a bit repetitive. Many points in this book will stay with me, I see already as I practice new habits and heighten my sensitivity to Somatics in general.

Helpful book. Strozzi-Heckler ties mind and body in his leadership development method. Just like Aikido, head knowledge is not enough. It's physical practice that will make the theory real. I found his framework of Centering-Facing-Extending-Entering-Blending useful.
