“There’s been an entire self-help movement that wound up dis-empowering women by either saying something is wrong that needs to be fixed, or just sells mindless aphorisms that aren’t actionable. The InPower material isn’t self-help mumbo-jumbo; it’s actionable coaching that delivers results.” 
S.B., Director of IT

A note from Dana
“As a young professional, I’m always on the lookout for strategies to help me enhance my interpersonal and leadership skills. So many tools available today are too theoretical and not easily transferable to real life situations, but InPower is different. Using these resources, it’s easier for me to communicate effectively, and I’m not as intimidated. I highly recommend InPower materials and techniques to anyone who wants to hone their communication and leadership skills.”
