InPower Consulting

President & CEO

InPower Consulting is a leadership development, cultural identity and talent innovation company. We help companies turn their leadership cultures and cultural identity into an asset instead of a drag on their business. Your company's leadership is your best asset, but if you haven't brought out the power lying within each one of them, you're wasting resources and muddying your identity in the market. Not your typical leadership development consultancy, InPower Consulting specializes in developing and supporting gender-partnered leadership teams, crystalizing your market identity through the power of your people and infusing your culture with time-tested change management principles designed to help you keep up with the never-stop-changing economy that's here for the future.

InPower Coaching

Founder

Leaders who are changing our world most dramatically come in many roles, but we all have one thing in common – we stand IN our personal power to lead – mastering our innate power to motivate groups instead of relying on external symbols and grants of authority. We are managers, directors and executives; we are solopreneurs and entrepreneurs; we have a vision of a better world and are committed to bringing it into being by helping others act in their power to accomplish shared goals. We succeed because we see ourselves and the world as it is absent illusion, master the personal and group skills necessary to create transformative outcomes and commit to using these abilities to change the world.

Based on a blend of psychological research – including research into the spiritual dimension of our psyche – as well as personal experience in my 25+ year business career, I’ve developed a fifteen-point framework to help you identify where you are in and out of power. Being In Power is not always what we think it is!
