The Power2 Leaderlab is a program of personal and professional leadership development based on our concept of Power2, a unique methodology that focuses on the rapid development of personal power.
The program centers on the leader’s own goals and challenges. Participants will come away with a personalized road map and process for unleashing their creative visions and fullest leadership potential.
The Power2 Leaderlab is offered both annually as an open-enrollment program with four three-day residential off-sites for up to 12 women leaders, and also as a custom designed in-house program. Both programs are based on a cohort model which fosters deep and genuine interaction, risk-taking, and collaboration.
The Residential Program
Comprised of up to 12 seasoned leaders from diverse sectors and industries, The Power2 Leaderlab Cohort Program is designed to accelerate and intensify learning by providing cohesion, real-time feedback, and a network of peers across industries and sectors.
The program consists of four three-day residencies, with coaching and peer group meetings in between. Executive coaches lead the program, offering their expertise, practical tools, and decades of experience.
In-house Power2 LeaderLab Programs
We provide customized programs tailored specifically to meet the unique needs of your organization and team. We can bring the Power2 methodology into your organization, and work with you to create a program that is focused, relevant, and integrated into your organization’s strategy.
The Power2 Leaderlab program focus on the following four phases of leader development:
Phase 1. Your Leadership Journey
This first residency is an introduction to the concepts and practices of Power2. Following the framework of The Hero’s Journey, you will map out the next phase of your leadership journey, identifying your goals, potential obstacles and allies along the way. We will work with the concept of power, and identify your personal sense of power, and ability to influence and impact the world around you.
Phase 2: The Self Aware Leader
This module focuses on identifying your “power leaks:” triggers, challenges, and obstacles where you lose your capacity to be effective. You’ll develop skills and tools for functioning effectively under pressure, and maintaining self-control in the face of challenge, criticism, and provocation.
Phase 3: The Other Aware Leader
This residency focuses on how you use your personal sense of power to develop and work with others. It presents tools for working effectively with conflict, holding challenging conversations, facilitating teams, and other interpersonal challenges
Phase 4: The Organizationally Aware Leader
How effectively do you use your power to influence others, facilitate change, and drive projects in your organization? This residency, the final one, will focus on the tools and skills for becoming organizationally adept and impactful. As our last module, we also work on integrating your learning, applying it to your power project, and making plans for your future leadership development.
Who is the Cohort Program for?
This program is for you, a leader seeking another level of personal and professional mastery, and wanting to accelerate your learning and performance. It is for you if, above all, you recognize that understanding your behavior, beliefs, and motivation are the keys to shaping your career trajectory and ultimately, your success as a leader.
As a woman leader, you recognize that within every interaction is a potential encounter with bias, and with images and expectations related to gender. Thus, every day presents a challenge for you to stay connected to your clarity, best thinking, and purpose. It becomes all too easy to lose contact with your personal power.
Getting grounded in your authenticity and purpose is the most direct path to your personal power. It’s also bottom-line the most important thing you can own and control as a leader. The Leaderlab for women will super-charge your sense of personal power, enabling you to sit confidently in who you are and what you’re about, and to focus on the world you want to create.
- Do you want to create your world, rather than react or adapt to the one you’re in?
- Do you sometimes lose focus and effectiveness in the face of stress, opposition, uncertainty, or conflict?
- Are you an early adopter? A pioneer amongst your peers?
- Are you willing to step up and become a mentor?
To ensure each participant has the optimum background to benefit from the program, admission is by application only. Applicants will be interviewed either in person or by phone. The program is limited to 12 leaders. Prior completion of a coaching or leadership development program is strongly recommended. We will work to ensure that participants represent diverse business and professional backgrounds, in order to enrich the experience for all.
We are confident that the Leaderlab will be an extraordinary journey. But if for any reason you are not satisfied, we will refund your tuition at no cost.
