469. Tribute to Wendy Palmer Sensei – With Mark Walsh

Tribute to Wendy Palmer Sensei 

Rest In Peace Wendy Palmer. Here’s a few words about her and her work.

Wendy’s website: www.leadershipembodiment.com


Wendy Palmer was the founder of Leadership Embodiment, a process that uses principles from the non-violent Japanese martial art of Aikido and mindfulness to offer simple tools and practices to increase leadership capacity and respond to stress and pressure with greater confidence and integrity. Wendy held a seventh degree black belt in Aikido and practiced mindfulness for over 40 years.

She worked with executive teams and individuals for Twitter, Genentech, Capital One, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, The Gap, NASA, Salesforce, McKinsey & Co, Oracle, Unilever, The BBC, Gates Foundation, The George Washington University, Comcast, Accenture, BlackRock Funds, and The Daimler Chrysler Group. She also authored four books, Dragons and Power, Leadership Embodiment, The Intuitive Body and The Practice of Freedom, and a supporting CD and DVD.

With Wendy’s passing in 2022, her daughter and business partner, Tiphani Palmer, continues to spread the gift of Wendy Palmer’s Leadership Embodiment work and coaching methods.
