Power Charged

At the heart of all our services is our proprietary Power Charged™ framework of effectiveness, which was developed based on extensive research on traits that distinguish successful individuals, groups, and organizations.  We identified twelve critical skills that successful individuals and organizations typically possess.  Power Charged is an acronym; each letter stands for one of twelve Power Charged Principles™.

The 12 Power Charged Principles incorporate important “soft skills” such as time management, negotiating, maintaining productive relationships, leading others, projecting confidence, reducing stress, and achieving goals.  Without these skills, you may be able to perform your job, but you are unlikely to achieve substantial success in your career or happiness.  You can experience substantial improvement in productivity and satisfaction by following the Power Charged Principles.
