About Us

Tara Powers
Tara Powers M.S. CEO, Powers Resource Center

Whether you’re a fast-growing start-up or a global company, odds are you have underutilized leaders in your organization. For over 20 years, we’ve been on a crusade to uncover and develop hidden potential in the workplace. Our success with more than 200 companies and 15,000 leaders has taught us how to achieve the impact that Executives want and inspire higher levels of clarity, communication and happiness in the process.

Our broad industry experience spans fast growth start-ups, government, healthcare, science, education, finance, media, marketing and consumer products. We travel internationally to speak on vital topics such as the effectiveness of virtual teams, women in leadership, building a strong leadership pipeline and practical strategies for creating healthy organizations.

Year after year, PRC’s leadership programs are recognized as a Top Leadership 500 Award winner by HR.com. We are honored to judge for the prestigious Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards and continue to be acknowledged by Wiley as a Top 10% assessment solution provider world-wide.

Our Solutions

  • 360 For Leaders

    Finally, a 360 for DiSC® users! But Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders isn't just any 360. It combines the best of 360s with the simplicity and power of DiSC, plus three personalized strategies for improving leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360° experience that's more productive and satisfying.

    SO HOW IS 363 DIFFERENT?
    First, we took the sting out of 360 feedback.
    For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. Open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful and can even derail the learning process. With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that the leader can actually use.

    Then, we made it easier to understand and use.
    Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders isn’t a collection of dry spreadsheets and charts without any explanation or story. Clear visuals and a conversational narrative style interpret and explain the data, making the report easy to understand and use.
