With Julie Diamond, Leadership Consultant and Founder, Diamond Power Index
Julie Diamond is an executive coach, leadership consultant, and creator of the Diamond Power Index, a Myers-Briggs-type assessment on a leader’s use of power. She’s worked with organizations around the world from Fortune 500 companies to government agencies, labour unions to NGOs. Her book, Power: A User’s Guide, is a handbook for using power effectively and ethically, no matter what role you’re in.
In this episode, Julie and I talk about how power literacy is the next frontier of human development, how it’s unfair that power always gets a bad rap, and what it means to use power WELL.
For more on the theme of power, read the story “Boss Lady” in my latest book Bones of Belonging.
