As many of you know, I've been focused on understanding power and helping others improve the way we use our power. I’m pleased to announce that starting in February 2017, I'll be offering certification and training for coaches, consultants, trainers, facilitators, and HR professionals, as well as managers and leaders—anyone interested in developing leadership capabilities and performance—through my new program called Coaching for Power Intelligence®. These 3-day training sessions consist of 4 modules, each, and attendees can take the entire course or just the first session (at a discounted price). There's much more to the program than I have room for here, so make sure to get all the details and register at my website: http://juliediamond.net/coaching-power-intelligence/

With only weeks left in the election cycle, it's clear that people in the US—and around the world—have different ideas about how a president ought to use their power, and what abuse of power really looks like. Check out Power in the Public Eye, a site I worked on just for the 2016 presidential campaign: http://powerinthepubliceye.org/

Join me in Warsaw this November for "A User's Guide to Power: Developing the Core Competences of Power for Therapists and Facilitators". When we work with people as growth facilitators, whether as coaches, counselors, consultants, or facilitators, our personality, awareness, and edges enter the picture. Above all, power is at play: the power of the advisor role, the power imbalance inherent in intimacy and dependency, and our own personal rank history. To work responsibly and ethically as facilitators, we need deep power competency and skills for navigating the complex mix of roles, rank and relationship.

In the health care field and helping professions, the best results tend to happen when the patient fully participates and takes initiative in the process. But that level of involvement doesn't happen automatically. There’s a long and sticky history to the old doctor-as-expert model. As a practitioner, you need to use your expertise to help others, but it can difficult not to fall prey to the trappings of the expert role. However, knowing how to be an expert and a partner in an alliance is not easy—nor is it commonly taught. Ethics isn’t enough. Ethical considerations are vital, but they doesn’t take into account the subtle changes of awareness and feelings created when you occupy a powerful role.

The other day I stumbled across this article, and found it personally touching to me: http://www.fastcompany.com/3062932/mind-and-machine/ai-is-a-male-dominated-field-but-an-important-group-of-women-is-changing-th The beginning of the story could have been written verbatim about my aunt, Dr. Leila Diamond. Years ago, she found herself one of two women at a cancer research conference and decided, with her colleague, to found Women in Cancer Research. I've blogged about her legacy and impact on me before—read more at the links below:

When I started my blog back in April 2008 it had a clear purpose: I was planning my book on power. I wanted a platform to work out my ideas, get feedback, connect with others, and have a writing discipline. Well, I did write the book, did connect with others, did get feedback (thank you!), and definitely did develop a writing discipline. The book came out at the beginning of the year, and it’s gratifying to see how the various threads in the posts came together. But the blog has done more than just helped me write Power: A User's Guide. Here's to change: http://juliediamond.net/change/thats-a-wrap/

Of all the fascinating things about this election—an election we’ll be talking about for years to come—this may be the most puzzling of all: Donald Trump’s supporters don’t actually see criticism against him as criticism. Hillary Clinton’s supporters defend against her criticisms, yet Trump’s supporters embrace the criticisms as praise — proof of his toughness, status as outsider, willingness to stand up to “political correctness,” and so on. https://medium.com/@julie_diamond/trump-supporters-and-opponents-see-the-same-traits-but-arrive-at-different-conclusions-e7735f55e6b9#.15aizgy3t
