Power Intelligence®: Becoming a Power Smart Leader
In this webinar, I will introduce you to the keys for using power effectively in a leadership role. We will look at power: What is power, and what are power problems? Why is power so problematic? Why does it become corrupting, as Lord Acton famously said? We will then work through the three key principles of becoming “power smart”—using power intelligently, effectively, and for the greater good.
Key Lessons of This Webinar
Build your personal power
While Positional Power bestows a license to act, Personal Power bestows the capacity to act. Your personal sense of power is a critical component of using power well.
Watch out for the lure of low rank
Feeling powerless is the number one reason people misuse their power. Develop your awareness and a toolkit for withstanding triggers and other threats to your sense of empowerment.
Close the Gap
The “lens” of power can distort communication across power divides. Learn how to navigate the gap between what you say and what’s received or understood to keep the lines of communication open, free, and clear.

“The Diamond Power Index® is a powerful lever to unlock the dynamics of groups and collaborations. The tool provides organisations with an accessible way to talk about and work productively with power, traditionally a non-discussable and conflicted area.”
