Authority, Power and Control

Authority, Power and Control in the Role of Trainer or Organizational Consultant

Trainers and consultants often react to their own internal anxieties when dealing with different corporate cultures or personalities. Those anxieties are often mirrors of a parallel process of the true dynamics in a company. This interactive and dynamic workshop will allow trainers and consultants to evaluate their own internal responses to authority, power and control.  You will be provided mechanisms to break organizational and personality challenges to resistance. The workshop will focus on effective usage of healthy internalized authority, power and control.

This workshop is geared to the experienced professional as well as to the recent grad and student. It promises to be engaging, highly useful, and fun.
