OUR APPROACH

WE WORK AS THOUGHT PARTNERS

Using a strength-based approach, we build on what our partners already do effectively to grow their strengths, and create new ones. Our process is collaborative and inclusive.

CUSTOMIZATION IS KEY

No two young people, families, schools, corporations, or organizations are exactly the same. PowerTools prides itself on customizing its processes and products to the needs and goals of its clients.

CULTURAL HUMILITY GUIDES OUR PRACTICE

We are driven by our passion for equity and justice. To this end, we engage in cultural humility, a life-long self-reflection and redressing  of inequality. We foster inclusive learning and working environments that honor the experiences, voices and value of each member. 

RESEARCH DRIVES OUR WORK

We do our homework and implement practices that research proves are most effective when it comes to adult learning and motivation, effective leadership, inclusion, organizational development, social emotional learning, neuroscience and youth development.
