Child welfare agencies are often filled with case workers and administrators whose case loads/assignments and work hours are too large, often leading to burnout and high employee turnover rates. Sometimes the stress found in child welfare agencies is associated with unclear power dynamics, communication styles and leadership strategies.
Right and skillful use of power and influence is a critically important component to building work partnerships based on trust and engagement between professionals, family members, and most importantly, youth. However, building right relationships with complex power dynamics and differentials can be challenging.
During this fun and highly interactive training, participants learn how the Right Use of Power™ can help them develop and refine skills and attitudes that will increase their ability to use power productively in supporting adult clients, youth, and colleagues. When taught throughout an agency, work environments are often transformed. Some former agency clients have called the results of the course we offer “revolutionary” and “empowering.”
This course is a full-day, in-person training taught by a member of the “Right Use of PowerTM Institute Teacher’s Guild,” the recognized authority on Right Use of PowerTM. Previous participants have:
- Gained insights into leadership, power styles and dynamics to increase their skill in using power,
- Increased awareness of communication styles and how to maximize interactions with others showing each style,
- Increased their ability to recognize and manage “power differentials” and
- Learned the disempowering influence of shame and how increased awareness of the use of power can heal and reduce communication barriers.
The course is offered at your agency location and includes fun and safe interactive components that encourage participants to grow in the knowledge of their leadership, power, and communication styles.
