Four Portals to Power: 

True Mastery for Trainers and Coaches

 Featuring Dean Herman


Dean Herman Pic

Regardless of the quality of your services, most of the participants in your training, coaching or other interventions are unable to fully open to, and to fully use, what you offer.  Holding them back are lifelong personality patterns that impel them to resist their own growth – and that overall block their effectiveness and undermine their organizations’ performance.  These powerful forces within the personality are the root cause of people’s limitations and require potent strategies for their transformation.

In this dynamic and interactive presentation, Dr. Herman will describe a precise and logical approach he has developed that dislodges stultifying personality patterns and generates deep, lasting change.  The tools and strategies of this framework foster an exquisite degree of self-mastery and relational mastery.  Trainers, coaches and OD professionals can use these very accessible methods not just with others, but with themselves as well, in order to optimize their impact.

In attending this session, you will:

  • Understand how to melt resistance and get leaders deeply committed to changing.
  • Gain penetrating psychological wisdom that will fundamentally shift how you see the behaviors of those you serve – so that you can help them calibrate what they do and elicit the responses they need.
  • Acquire a framework for showing managers how they create the very situations that so frustrate them – and how, through self-awareness, they can generate very different outcomes.
  • Overall, learn a powerful system of insights and tools for triggering profound leadership and personal transformation.

Presenter: Dean Herman, Ph.D., is a psychologist and executive consultant. He has enhanced the performance of thousands of leaders in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia at such companies as Hewlett-Packard, Toyota, Nestle, Wells Fargo, Texas Instruments, Siemens and McKinsey & Company. Dr. Herman brings the insights and power of the field of psychology to organizational leaders in ways that are accessible and transformative. He is the author of Four Portals to Power: A Practical Guide to True Self-Mastery for Leaders.
