PowerPlay Performance, LLC - Corporate Division
Position does not equal power; power is determined by how you affect people. ~ Dr. Michael-Renee Godfrey
The Corporate Division of PowerPlay Performance works to enhance high performance in executive and senior leadership similar to how an elite athlete uses a coach. Corporate coaching is not remediation and it is not limited to conflict resolution and communication. At PowerPlay Performance, we understand the importance of compassion, relationship, and persuasion skills; and more importantly, the need for self-awareness and empathy. We focus on the whole person not just the set of skills they need to perform a role.
You don't lead by hitting people over the head-that's assault, not leadership.
~ Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
The higher up you go in companies, the more you’re dealing with psychological and relational issues. Successful CEO leadership requires astuteness about others: their emotional and strategic personal drivers; their self-interest, overt and covert. These relationship competencies rest on a foundation of self-knowledge, self-awareness. And you can’t know the truth about another without knowing it about yourself. Self-knowledge and the relational competencies they’re linked with are central to a CEO’s ability to formulate, articulate and lead a strategic vision for a motivated, energized organization. Self-knowledge builds clarity about objectives; it fine-tunes one’s understanding the perspectives, values, aims and personality traits of others. When that’s lacking, you often see discord and conflict among members of the senior management team; or between some of its members and the CEO. (LaBier, Huffington Post, August 6, 2013)
People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
