$200.00 – $750.00

Our Core Training is a 4-day, live, online global learning experience that follows our Basics Training (which is a prerequisite for the Core Training). The Core Training is for people who are ready to dive deeper into all of the types of power. In the Right Use of Power™ approach, we explore our own relationship with power and increase our skill in navigating our personal and professional relationships.

In our Core Training, you will:

  • Learn about the neurobiology of power and how to counteract the effects of our brains and bodies on power
  • Explore role power differentials and learn how to handle challenging interactions when there is a power difference.
  • Understand the importance of feedback and the difference between intention and impact.
  • Start to understand the shadow aspects of power and how we can work with them.
  • Learn how to work with conflict in power-conscious and generative ways.
  • Better understand systemic power and how it influences the other types of power.
  • Learn about shame and other emotional experiences that may impact our use of power

After our trainings, participants have said they can now:

  • Be more ethically proactive around power dynamics.
  • Engage their personal power with more awareness and presence.
  • Be more aware of the shadow aspects of power.
  • Lean into feedback and conflict with more skill and awareness of power.
