Event description

Description

Have you ever felt that 'power', as accepted by current society, does not fit with your personality? Have you had people perceive you as 'soft' because of your nurturing, compassionate and forgiving nature? Have you been in situations where you don't know whether to stop and reflect (pull) or maintain resilience and continue (push)?

You may come across these situations and wonder what power means to you. More importantly, how can you maintain authenticity and at the same time be powerful in your own way?

In this workshop, StoryArtist and Power Cards Creator Wesa Chau showcases her talent in creating the Power Cards and shares her PowerStory: the journey to find her own personal power. Together with Christine Yeung, Organisational Psychologist and Founder of Beyond Story, we facilitate discussions and guide you through interactive activities:

- To explore the notion of power and broaden your views and understanding of what power is by discussing traditional vs new ways of defining power.

- To understand your own authentic power through using the Power Cards

On the day: We will welcome you at 5:30 pm for networking with drinks and snacks provided, workshop starts at 6pm.

What is Power Cards?

It takes power to influence and empower people to bring together a cohesive society. Power is an energy and to maintain it requires awareness and skills. Tune into it, work with it and it will work for you.

This beautiful deck of Power Cards was created as a tool to help you embrace your authentic power and improve your relationship to power. You can choose a card for everyday guidance or use the cards in workshops or for coaching purposes.

*Special offer: You will receive a $10 off if you combine your ticket purchase with a set of Power Cards (originally valued at $34.95).
