Target Audience: The Powers Resource Center has been in business for approximately 15 years this year. They have served thousands of leaders and managers in Fortune 500 & Fortune 1000 companies. More specifically, it is for companies that are going through growth and are really trying to build their talent capabilities.

The foundation of Leading is creating TRUST so that people WANT to follow you. This allows for clear COMMUNICATION!

More specifically, this tool helps to indicate how a person responds to conflict and stress. This allows people to more appropriately manage conflict so that they can ask for what they need- and reveals preferences and styles which allow the leader to be more flexible in how they recognize and delegate to people. A leader who understands others will excel.

How do we bring out the best in people & leverage that?

We can’t change people. We can’t fix people. They are who they are. So, take what they excel at and leverage that. It’s about knowing everyone’s strengths. This is why it’s an important tool for teams and leaders.

How is your business going…would you like to talk about it?

I love my audience of listeners. I really do.  I would love to help you in some way. I started doing calls with listeners and realized that it was a great way to understand you.

Ok, then I formalized the process to offer a Results Roadmap…it is a private one-on-one call with me about your business.  I want to help you see your roadmap with more clarity and confidence. Find out more about the Results Roadmap (it takes you to my personal website). This is not a sales pitch. Let me serve you.
