Episode 24: Power Dynamics in the Workplace with Jeff Couillard

What is power? And what does it mean to have power?

How does power influence the dynamics and relationships in the workplace?

And what does it take to dismantle the oppressive systems that exist within the workplace? 

Power can be both a positive and a negative trait, depending on the way it is used. When there’s a power struggle, conflicts can arise. And when there’s exploitative or coercive use of power it becomes an oppressive force.

In today’s episode, Jeff Couillard, the Co. CEO of The Ally Co., will help us understand: 

  • What is power
  • The 5 types of power and how they come into play in the systems that exist in the workplace
  • Why overcoming addiction makes people powerful
  • The best course of action when transforming the leadership and the systems in the workplace 
  • How power affects a company's effort to change the system and chase down root problems
  • The importance of accountability in leadership

Jeff is also the Director of Learning and Development at The Ally Co., and the host of The Leaderful Podcast, a show that explores human-centered, systems-conscious approaches to leadership and building high-functioning teams. 

Jeff loves all things teaching, facilitating, speaking, and consulting. And his mission is to help people connect with their power, align with what’s most meaningful, and take positive action toward it. 

The Ally Co. is a company that helps create leaderful organizations that are value-based and inclusive workplace teams where people consciously use their power to create meaningful connections and positive impact.
