Have you experienced a situation where you felt you had no control?  Have you felt powerless in a work or academic environment? In this workshop, the focus will be to deepen your awareness of the interplay between yourself and others, both at the personal and social level.  Based on the Diamond model of leadership, we will explore strategies for building confidence in how you interact with others in your life and work.  

Power exists but we rarely talk about it positively. It’s essential for us to step into our courage and transform power within ourselves, our relationships, and the teams and organizations we a part of.  This workshop uses practical, interactive, and experiential approaches along with self-reflection and small group discussions to explore the implications of different types of power available to you. You will leave with insights to shift your experience when working with others for greater impact on the world around you.

Learning Objectives: 

1.    Identify the contexts in which you have more influence than you think
2.    Learn more about how to apply different types of power 
3.    Identify one or two strategies to apply moving forward, for greater impact
