Talent Development is Personal
The employees walking the halls of your organization are your biggest business asset, and it’s in constant danger of walking out the door. As the millennial generation ages into levels of responsibility, they’re giving voice to something we all need–to be treated with respect and valued for our work and our potential. Organizations who don’t step up to supporting their employees’ professional and personal development will bear higher costs of employee turnover–from 30% to 250% of salary*–as compared to those who do.
Talent development requires an intention to bring emotional intelligence to work. There’s no simple formula to keeping good employees, but one thing we know for sure is that middle managers who don’t operate from a place of personal power and emotional intelligence will drive them away.
That’s why we’ve been working on cracking the code on personal power in the workplace, and with the launch of the InPower Enterprise Coaching Platform in 2015, we’ve done it! This innovative, global and affordable talent development solution helps you reach your entire employee population with coaching-quality multimedia lessons and tools to develop their Emotional Intelligence (EQ) “in the work,” instead of in a training facility.
Change In the Workplace
Working with individual clients we’ve decoded the progression from personal mastery to executive stewardship of culture change, employee engagement and performance. To make it affordable for our corporate clients we make self-study multimedia materials (videos, readings, audio recordings and worksheets) available to support individuals as they discover their personal superpowers while participating in group coaching and accountability programs.
The result? Employees find their personal paths to authentic emotional intelligence while working with their colleagues, customers and stakeholders, to shift the organizational culture as they develop. A boon to team productivity, InPower Coaching is designed to work for every individual in your company while bringing teams into closer alignment.

Stop picking and choosing who gets leadership development
There is never enough leadership development budget to give all the employees who deserve support developing their emotional intelligence. That’s why we’ve combined self-assessments, personal development planning templates and hundreds of worksheets, short videos and audio recordings online to give your employees the tools they need to practice developing themselves in the work. As they become increasingly engaged, each interaction with fellow employees and customers becomes the learning ground for increasingly improved stress management, communications impact, high-performance teamwork, leading change and stewarding the culture towards success. Popular culture shift themes include:
- change resilience & leadership
- team alignment
- accountable leadership
What employees are saying…
The Energy Integrity lesson came at a great time this week as I was pulled a bunch of different directions with competing priorities. I was conscious about choosing my commitments and I was able to ADD additional activities to my week. I was able to accomplish more and was happier about what I was doing, which helped to round out a great week! – E. B., MICROSOFT EMPLOYEE
I am finding InPower Coaching really valuable. I am learning how many aspects of challenging relationships are not due to my behavior, but other people’s baggage. Amazing! I have such a weight off of me now; I haven’t resolved everything, but I feel much better and more confident. – A.L. – MARKETING EXECUTIVE, BIOTECH
