When Karen picked POWER, it was before I had chosen Vulnerability for myself and I was like ‘damn, that was MY theme’. Turns out that it was right and perfect because digging into vulnerability was an eye opener for each person who wrote. I’m grateful that Karen ‘stole’ my theme. And I feel like it fits HER perfectly, it fits just right. Karen and I met at an event over a year ago. We randomly … Keep reading because it’s good stuff…

True Power Comes From Within

Karen Davis bio

By: Karen Davis It feels as if I’ve spent my entire life learning about power. I excelled early-on in my career to positions of leadership. I was very successful at managing teams, creating long-standing relationships and even hitting revenue targets that others deemed impossible. I combined my ability to strategically see possibilities and my gift of intuition to navigate effectively. To the outside world, I appeared confident, direct and powerful.

LOVE IS THE ONLY TRUE POWER

Marilyn

By: Marilyn Rodriguez The word power has been so misused and misinterpreted that it took me almost my entire lifetime so far to understand what the word power means. Power is not anger tossed around without care. Power is not control. Power is not bullying. Power is not manipulation. Power is not fighting. Power is not shaming or making others feel guilty.

By: Amir Karkouti If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. ~ Barry Lopez, in Crow and Weasel My client couldn’t get clarity as I was telling him what I thought he should do about his situation with his ex-wife. I know when you are in the midst of an argument that it’s … Keep reading because it’s good stuff…

The Intimate Art of Vulnerability

Marilyn

By: Marilyn Rodriguez What I don’t want you to know about me is that allowing myself to be powerful is one of the biggest risks I’ve taken in my life. Since I began my journey of exploring and embodying my own power, I have faced my greatest fears head on. I used to be terrified of my power so I became powerless.

Naked But Not Afraid Now

Karen Davis bio

By: Karen Davis What I don’t want you to know about me is that I spent most of my life loathing the notion of being vulnerable. Here I am, supposedly this iron-willed champion of CEOs, senior leaders and captains of industry. Yet, up until about six years ago, I held a deep-seated belief that being vulnerable was a sign of weakness and that, ultimately, people would think less of me for it. I also believed … Keep reading because it’s good stuff…

By: Stacy Nelson What I don’t want you to know about me is that this is the hardest issue I’ve ever published, that stepping up to be a Cover Coach had thrown me into a wee bit of panic, the vulnerability hangover has already begun. Breathing deeply into the nakedness of putting myself front and center. It’s not being vulnerable that’s scaring me however… It’s about claiming that spot powerfully. This vulnerability thing, this thing … Keep reading because it’s good stuff…

The Mastery of Power

Star close shot

By: Star Staubach As a coach myself, you might be under the false impression that I have all of the answers on mastering, accessing and unleashing my full potential. I have yet to unleash such mastery. I vacillate somewhere between recognizing my own ability to tap into my Divine Power and thinking that I’m too insignificant to fully access it. The perfect message, loyal followers, a large stage, perfect marketing content, fear of failure, jealousy, … Keep reading because it’s good stuff…

By: Randi J. Radul I love power full careers, I love powerful men, I love powerful music, I love powerful reading, I have a powerful leadership style, I have power in every personality profile that I have ever done. Power has always been a negative word to me. Power has always had a derogatory tone. I have never appreciated being told that I was powerful; in fact I cowered when I heard those words.
