    "Navigating the Traps of Power: Coaching Leaders to Develop Their Power Intelligence"

    Research shows that how leaders enact their authority and power has an outsized effect on the organizational culture, influencing employee motivation, productivity, and creative engagement. Power plays a role in whether or not there is a culture of:

    • Engagement—do people have opportunities to contribute, grow, and develop?
    • Psychological Safety—are people able to ask questions, share opinions, and take risks?
    • Respect—are people treated appropriately by managers and co-workers?
    • Inclusion—do people have equal access to opportunities?
    • Appreciation—is work acknowledged and appreciated?

    Yet even the most emotionally intelligent and well-meaning leaders aren’t always aware of the impact their power has on others, because the higher up you go, the less feedback you receive. Power is intimidating, and has a dampening effect on engagement. What’s more, people are motivated to alter their behaviour towards the leader, creating a potentially dangerous vacuum of feedback. A healthy organizational culture is one in which people are free to take risks, speak up, disagree, and share information freely. Therefore, it is vital leaders understand how their power can be creating effects they don’t intend, and what they can do about it. This interactive session addresses:

    • Understand the psychological influences of power: how does power change you and the people around you?
    • Identify the factors that lead to derailment in a position of power
    • Learn the seven behavioral competencies for using power effectively and positively to foster healthy and productive organizational cultures.
    • Become familiar with the many different kinds of power, and know how to use the right power, in the right context, for the right reason.
    • Enhance your toolkit with methods for coaching and training leaders to use power effectively
