Rethinking Power Dynamics

No leader wants to walk into a conversation-filled room, only to have everyone go silent and stare at them. Too frequently, this is followed by an attempt to diminish the power dynamics with “just consider me one of the team.” Only this fails to work, over and over and over. Power dynamics will always exist. The question is whether you learn how to energize people using “power with” instead of “power over”. Join Tricia to examine four power dynamics that impact everyone’s abilities to deliver. As you practice a couple of tools for “power with”, expect to discover expectations, vulnerabilities, and hidden truths in the current struggles. The goal is to challenge yourself, so you can improve the odds of success for everyone.
