Power-Conscious Authentic Leadership

November 5th @ 10:00 am - December 17th @ 12:00 pm MST

Virtual Event Virtual Event
$400.00 – $750.00

A 6-session online workshop integrating Authentic Leadership and Right Use of Power concepts and practices for leaders of teams, organizations and communities.

Authentic Leadership encourages leaders to bring themselves fully and creatively to their leadership challenges and to invite others to do the same. To become an authentic leader involves expanding self-awareness and presence, cultivating good communication skills and leading with both vulnerability and courage. However, power dynamics can sometimes derail leaders’ best of intentions and create awkward moments that erode trust.

Integrating Right Use of PowerTM concepts and practices into your leadership approach will strengthen your ability to lead with integrity and empathy by enhancing access to your personal power and acknowledging the impact that role and status power have in all of our interactions.

We will explore the 5 types of power in the context of Authentic Leadership—helping you understand the power you have and how to wield it skillfully with empathy and compassion. This is particularly important in diverse work environments in which power is distributed unevenly in society and yet we seek to create inclusive workplaces.

Each 2-hour session will include community-building, lecture, dialogue, small-group interaction, self-reflection and embodiment exercises.

In addition, each participant will receive two 1-hour small group coaching sessions, with the instructor, to explore specific leadership challenges and receive personalized coaching.

Learning Outcomes:

  •   Understand the role of authenticity in cultivating trust and engagement in the workplace
  •   Understand how the “Right Use of Power” can enhance one’s ability to lead with integrity and heart
  •   Learn and apply the 3 core competencies of Authentic Leadership

  •   Increase self-awareness, credibility and leadership impact using a variety of methods
