Welcome To the...

We, at the TRUE Power Institute, believe the world is in a dire need for an upgrade in all areas of life, including how we hold the notion of power

This is a think-tank-like project created around the need to re-examine how we, as leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians, and influencers understand the nature of power, relate to power, source power, and wield power. 

Continuing the age-old norm of power-over is no longer acceptable in the emerging new story of humanity. The new standard will be power-with and power to — power to the PEOPLE.

We aspire to support leaders, their teams, and organizations in propelling their process to wake up to and unleash their TRUE Power while evolving humanity's relationship to power. We do this through our change agent and social activism, messaging, coaching, mentoring, program facilitation through Conscious Leadership, speaking, writing, and content creation. Join us in the conversation, exploration, and cultivation of stepping into TRUE Power to co-create a better world.
