Great leaders create
great cultures.

Diamond Leadership’s global certification programs give you the tools and knowledge you need to develop the leaders you support.

Whether you want to prepare a leader for the next level, develop your high-performers, optimize the performance of your leadership team, or ensure that your leaders are creating a healthy and thriving team culture, the first step is to become certified in the Diamond Power Index® (DPI).

Our certification program will not only provide you with the technical knowledge to use the Diamond Power Index®, it will also change the way you understand power—not only your clients’ but also your own.

“I’ve used many tools over my 20 years of consulting. The Diamond Power Index stands apart from the rest. Because it combines feedback from others across 7 unique power competencies with self-assessment on Personal Power metrics, it opens the door to entirely new coaching conversations. As a coach, that’s exactly what I want. ”

This course opened my eyes to power and the aspects of power that we don’t see or we overlook. This added a complete and practical new component to the way Leadership is handled

The certification course was very insightful and inspiring, for me personally – and even more so – professionally as a coach and consultant. Having the Diamond Power Index in my toolbox means being able to support leaders and their organizations in building an innovative and inclusive work environment.

Julie’s work is groundbreaking and she is a brilliant teacher. She uses her research, methodologies and experience to deliver an engaging program that not only equips you with the tools to measure power, but also gets you really thinking about how power is used or misused for yourself as well as for others. I would highly recommend this course if you want to learn more about power in a way that is deeply thought provoking, innovative and practical.

The course presents a rigorously developed model in an accessible style. I thoroughly recommend this course and look forward to using the assessment with my clients.

The timing and content of the course couldn’t be better given the social, economic and political times we are in as a collective. It was an incredible learning and execution experience and a very relevant, timeless tool to have.

I read Julie Diamond’s book Power – a User’s Guide a couple of years ago and finally got around to certification in the Diamond Power Index. Wow! It is such a great assessment. I love the emphasis on how we as individuals experience power vs understanding our impact on others, which often is not in sync. I highly recommend this certification and I will be using the assessment with many of my executive coaching clients.

This body of work is impressive and worth learning for coaches who work with people in powerful positions–or those who seek them.
