Dr Paul Taylor Pitt, or Paul, as he insists being called, despite the many letters behind his name is an incredible teacher. He balances a genuine self-deprecation with grounded confidence and curiosity and a spirit of collective experimentation. It’s pretty f*****g awesome.
No wonder he’s a successful organizational development & somatic coach, having been recognized with awards such as HR Most Influential Thinkers 2022 from HR Magazine OD Network's 2023 Global Award for Organizational Excellence and Impact. Awarded to Do OD, among a long list of awards throughout his career.
But it wasn’t until one fateful day at the gym that he really found his calling—somatics. And he’s pursued a somatic/ embodied approach to his OD and personal coaching, and to say this has enriched his experience as well as his clients is an understatement.
Add to that his LGBTQ advocacy—including authoring a gay Scottish folk story—a first, and with a happily ever after ending, along with his podcasting and organizational development and coaching at Metamorphosish and you start to get the picture of this renaissance of a man.
In this conversation, we cover a lot. From defining exactly what embodied coaching is, how it differs from conventional conversational coaching, what its benefits are, how Paul was drawn to somatic coaching, and of course some conversation about the state of affairs with LGBTQI A+ community, Scottish folklore and Barbie.
So settle in, get cozy with a cup of tea—and feel like you are a part of this conversation, listening intently from a side chair. It’s the perfect way to relax and enjoy a fascinating conversation that’s sure to leave you wanting more.
