When you look at working environments, different manifestations of power are omnipresent. Without power, work would probably not be done, at least not as efficient as we are used to it. But what exactly is power?

There are different aspects to power and definitively no such thing as “good” or “bad” power, since both can be used in a good and in a not-so-good way. Furthermore, power is different to mere enforcement. And, if used in a wise way, power can be vital to organizations.

I would like to be talking about different types of power and how power can be used for a collaborative working atmosphere, which empowers women and leads to more diverse teams. I will also stress the link between power and leadership and how both should interact to create sustainable, diverse and successful teams.
