About Us

PowerUp Leadership

PowerUp Leadership was founded with a vision of cultivating more Inspired Leadership in our workplaces. Our focus is to grow your leaders to inspire performance.  

We support leaders to set goals, increase their capabilities in communication, relationship building, conflict resolution, and self care and stress management. When you get leadership right, your organization becomes a talent magnet. Many of our clients are professional services firms and technology firms.

Organizations who develop high-potential talent below senior levels are 4.2 times more likely to outperform those who don’t. Companies which take a full-pipeline view of potential also have higher-quality senior leadership and more diversity at every level, not just high potentials.

Effective leadership has a domino effect. You lead the way you are led. We can help design and launch a program to provide executive coaching across all job levels and train human resources on how to manage your coaching, mentoring, and onboarding programs. Companies are more profitable when they reward leaders for consistently demonstrating people-focused, ethical leadership. 

Every interaction is an opportunity to tap into leadership capability.

Inspired Leadership™ Podcast

Tyler Bayley and Susan Power talk Inspired Leadership™. The podcast celebrates examples of inspired leadership to encourage more of it in our workplaces.

The word "Inspire" means to excite, encourage, or breathe life into. Inspire comes from the Latin word that means to inflame or to blow into. When you inspire someone, it is as if you are blowing air over a low flame to make it grow. If you have a leadership story we should feature on a future episode or would like to sign up as a guest, we would love to hear from you. Email susan@powerupleadership.ca or bayleyty@gmail.com.
