About Us

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

We are on a mission to help fast growing companies and socially responsible organizations boost employee passion, develop cohesive teams, and build leadership capacity for the future. At PRC, we're committed to offering quality programs that integrate best business practices and have a visible impact on performance. For 4 years in a row, PRC’s Leadership Programs have earned the prestigious recognition as a Top 10 Leadership 500 Award winner by HR.com and we are a Wiley award winning partner for 15 years and counting.

Whatever your goal, you can be sure that it’s ours too, along with delivering the kind of results that make you want to do the happy dance!

We wow our clients every day by taking tired workshops, stale strategies, and cookie cutter consulting off the table so that we can innovate and customize our services to meet your unique challenges. Our clients become our partners and we work collaboratively to build outstanding cultures that people look forward to being a part of. And we’ve been told we’re pretty darn good at it.

We offer team building workshops and retreats, executive coaching, train the trainer programs, certification opportunities, leadership development programs, and outstanding strategic support for your executive teams.

If you have a mid-sized company that’s ready for some high level growth, and you want to grow it right, we want to partner with you. We are committed to offering quality programs that integrate best business practices and have a visible impact on performance. And we promise that your needs always come first in every learning situation. We pride ourselves on programs that are progressive, innovative and highly interactive.

Our skilled trainers, coaches and facilitators bring a wide diversity of experience and knowledge to the learning environment. For 20 years PRC and its associates have led workshops and coached senior executives, directors, supervisors and employees at numerous service, governmental, financial and technology-focused organizations. Participants in PRC programs continually remark on the experience, enthusiasm, energy, and thoughtfulness of the PRC facilitator or coach when interacting with others in a learning environment. Through a needs discovery conversation, we will determine the right facilitator and trainer for this program that is the best match with your culture.

  • 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.
