Who We Are

Since 1998 PowerSkills International has provided onsite classroom-based and online professional development and personal growth seminars, executive advising, coaching, organizational consulting and program development support to municipal, state and federal agencies, corporations, associations, nonprofits and international organizations.

Our team members’ experience and advanced degrees in business, organizational management and human relations (e.g., counseling, social work, psychology), allow us to help you gain both a macro and micro view of whatever challenge, vision or goal you want to address.

We can rapidly delve into and discern challenges that seem intractable and insurmountable. We blend human, systems, and skills solutions to meet your needs. We help you understand what is really going on, what can be done about it, and the services that will best meet your needs.

Our Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to help you build world-class skills, sustained spirit, and community at work. We help you transform professionals and cultures at work by provoking new thought and an application of what is learned. Rather than passive learning, we believe real development is active and applied.

When you want to develop human capital, talent, and leadership at all levels our suite of seminars offers you a laser-focused approach. We bring the learning to you, on-site and online. Learning must be intriguing, applicable to real-world situations, supported by outcome-based competencies, and generative of practical solutions to immediate problems and long-term plans. Our seminars incorporate all of these components and so much more. They are experiential, interactive provocative, fun, and competency-based.

What are PowerSkills?

PowerSkills are comprised of all the technical, professional and life skills that are needed to lead at work and in life.

A person’s power skills are those innate potentials and abilities within each person, that when cultivated, developed and practiced, enable individuals and groups to attain any goal that they can envision and hope to strive for. The power skills within a person include but are not limited to, skills for leading, working, communicating, managing, balancing, organizing, caring, motivating self and others, inspiring, resolving, healing and many more.

At PowerSkills we firmly believe that every person and every group have all of this potential and all of these abilities. Our mission is to help each person and group tap into them, develop them and use them for the greater good at work and in life.
