Dynamics of Power
What is power?
Power is the ability to make things happen in accordance with one’s will. After all, it is easy to make things happen against one’s will - such things are known as mistakes. But to bend the world in line with what we intend, that requires power.
However, power is not a simple substance. It is complex and volatile. It requires skilful handling if it is not to backfire.
What do we do?
We work with people in the following areas to identify and resolve power issues:
1. Financial and commercial
For businesses in a market where the power dynamics are shifting, and where
the relationships among competitors, suppliers, partners, shareholders, regulators customers and other stakeholders may be uncertain.
For companies in which organisational politics are threatening results; or where certain departments or teams are engaged in a power struggle that is taking energy away from core business.
3. Social and political
For charities, NGOs, social enterprises, think tanks and political entities who are seeking to secure their own power base or credibility in relation to funders, audiences and competitors.
4. Sexual and gender identity
For those individuals or organisations seeking to understand the changing nature of sexual and gender identity, and how power dynamics among different groups are being recalibrated in the process.
5. Personal and family relationships
For individuals consciously or unconsciously entangled in the power dynamics of their family system, and who wish to become free of such entanglements in order to realise their potential.
