Power 2017-05-31T15:19:57+00:00



The power programme gives comprehensive understanding of the different routes to power: how to gain power, how to retain power and to apply it. The power programme examines different types of power, aligned with the human behavior and motivating forces of the Four Levels of Perception and the Internal Landscape. Delegates will understand the differences of hard and soft coercive power, asset power, doctrinal power and relationship power. The routes to power are rarely used as a single entity and are often applied in a combined form. If a person or group are to obtain power and retain power it is essential that they apply the appropriate type of power for a specific and changing situation.

  1. Become more powerful leaders
