The Power Lab (1975) was a life changing experience. You and the staff were very influential in opening my eyes and helping me to see systems at work.
The parallel immersion and helicopter view of 'system' issues positively impacted my work and personal life within weeks of completion of the lab. The total immersion experience of The Power Lab, combined with the exceptional personal and group coaching experiences and systems analyses cannot be replicated by any 'course' or 'seminar.' It's one of those 'you have to be there' experiences!
The Power Lab enabled me to take my leadership to the next level. Being part of the simulation and having excellent coaches available had a huge impact. I'm still benefiting fom the insights gained at The Power Lab.
The whole Lab experience has been excellent for me and when adding in the coaching before and after the week, I consider it good value as well.
The Power Lab remains my most powerful experiential learning encounter and will remain with me for a long time.
Besides life itself, The Power Lab succeeded completely in creating the most dynamic and potent learning environment of my long life. All else I’ve done pales in comparison. But, then, I like intense learning experiences.
Not a day has gone by that I haven't thought about The Power Lab and haven't acted differently as a result. Some of those different actions have resulted in better outcomes; all of them have made me feel more powerful, more intentional, more alive.
I attended The Power Lab in 1977. I have applied your insights and behavioral training over my career and can honestly say it played a most important part of my management and leadership success.
Until I recognized my behavior and my tendency to react like a typical “Middle” in this intense experience, I never questioned the systems I live in or considered alternative behaviors. Now I am constantly evaluating systems and how I can best utilize my power to improve my experience and the overall performance of my division. This experience will stay with me for many years to come.
One does not really truly believe that there is the potential within every single human being to change anything and everything until you’ve done it or watched it happen right in front of you. The Power Lab allowed me to experience the personal challenges, difficulties, and rewards of doing just that.
The coaches helped me identify quickly my leadership opportunities while providing important feedback on the impact my actions were having on people and the system, always doing this in a respectful yet challenging manner. I felt safe to take risks. It was tremendous. I felt totally supported by the coaches.
After experiencing The Power Lab it has become much easier to understand why people and organizations have so much trouble communicating, but now I know HOW to overcome those problems.
The most powerful personal and professional development program I have ever attended. The experience helped me clarify who I am, what I stand for, and the choices I have before me.
The coaches at The Power Lab helped me see possibilities that I was blind to. They pushed me to take risks that I wouldn’t have taken without their support and feedback. That experience has since changed the way I lead my team back at work.
My learnings from the Power Lab have changed the way I consult and increased the success of my interventions.
