Living Yoga: Drop the Drama and Be the Change with Natalie Miller

Which roles have you outgrown, and which dramas are you done with?

Where in your life would you like less complaining and more creative solutions?

With whom do you want to be resourceful and resilient, rather than reactive and insecure?

Where are you ready to honor your whole self, and show up with better boundaries and more integrity?

Wherever it is you're ready to evolve, one thing is for sure:

Changing how you see and show up in the world changes everything.

Lead Yourself from Drama to Co-Creativity with TED*

In this 10-week series, we'll dive deep into The Empowerment Dynamic (TED*), a self-leadership paradigm that offers practical tools and frameworks for relating with integrity and navigating change with courage.

Based on David Emerald's book, The Power of TED*, this series will help you to develop:

* More balanced, resourceful, and resilient relationships, so you can show up as your whole self, with less stress and more ease

* Improved self-awareness, so you can shift out of reactivity and negativity and into creativity and compassion

* Practices for accessing growth mindset, so you can meet life's challenges with courage

* Ways to be generous without overextending yourself, so you stop taking on what's not yours

* More facility making inspired, creative, self-honoring decisions, even in the face of drama, change, and uncertainty


A Bit about TED*

Leadership coach David Emerald created TED* as an escape from Stephen Karpman's Drama Triangle, a finger-pointing relational paradigm in which people tend to get stuck focusing on problems, assigning blame, and either avoiding responsibility or taking on way too much of it.

When we're stuck in Drama, our choices tend to be reactive, avoidant, and fear-driven. We feel the weight of the world on our shoulders: either as our burden to bear, or as an unfair onslaught keeping us down.

TED* is an empowering antidote to this perspective, as it asserts the inherent creative capacity of all humans. TED* helps us to focus on our desired outcomes, sparks our creativity, and promotes courageous, cooperative action-taking.

When we shift away from Drama and toward the Empowerment Dynamic, we see life's challenges as opportunities to learn and grow, and we see ourselves in partnership rather than in isolation.

TED* is especially helpful in times of change, and is used in organizations around the world as they evolve to meet ever-shifting circumstances.

For our purposes, TED* offers excellent self-leadership strategies that help us to show up all over our lives in more effective, flexible, and self-honoring ways.
