Why does Doing Power Differently matter to you?
Leadership involves determining what matters most and acting from there – whether guiding a family, running a business, or holding public office.
As women leaders, we are in an excellent position to actively apply our power and skills to transform the very nature of power itself from ‘power over’ to ‘power with.’
It turns out – not that you’ll be surprised – the competencies common among women such as empathy, flexibility, patience, intuition, and vulnerability are highly effective for managing and leading complex organizations.
The world is ready and in need of our skills across all organizations, causes, and communities. Truly doing power differently expands the possibilities not just for women, but for everyone.
With heartfelt love,

Working with Dr. Chris I have discovered some amazing things: I have come to know a person I never thought existed. I feel like magic has happened in my life.CM
"As a leader, it's a major responsibility on your shoulders to practice the behavior you want others to follow."– Himanshu Bhatia
Dr. Chris isn’t constrained by the pretenses of her profession. She is incredibly flexible and responsive, yet has challenged me to stand in my power and build my capacity as a professional.LG
Research shows that practices such as meditation, mindfulness, and embodiment develop our capacity to be present and open in difficult situations so that we can listen rather than react, so we can tend rather than defend.
These are exactly the skills we must develop and practice as leaders to be most impactful in the modern world.
This 2.5-hour workshop is for you if you’re:
- Seeking greater influence and impact.
- Willing to explore uncomfortable questions and embodied patterns.
- Ready to move out of limiting beliefs, embodied patterns, and overwhelm to live fully and mindfully in the moment for the greater good.
I’m Chris Johnson, PsyD., founder of Q4 Consulting, Inc. and the Core Presence Institute™
I’m passionately committed to cultivating exemplary leaders, collaborative teams, healthy workplaces, and thriving communities.
I hold a doctoral degree from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, where my clinical focus has been healing trauma individually, in families, and in the workplace. And as a Master Somatic Coach and Certified Mindfulness Teacher, I’ve offered extensive programs to train attention and tap the body as a rich source of intelligence, wisdom, and action. A key commitment of mine continues to be to extend embodied leadership into the marketplace, and to that end, I’m privileged to serve on the Executive Team for the Chicago Chapter of Conscious Capitalism as Chair of Learning & Practice.
When I’m not working, I’m likely either making art, gardening, reading a great book, or at the Aikido dojo practicing the art of peace.
