I give this poster to clients to figure out how they handle conflict. When we are stuck within a power struggle (which, in it's extreme form is bullying), we choose to Power Over, or Power Under. We can also think about it as choosing "violence" or "silence".
They key to snap out of these power-plays (and even get out of bullying or abusive relationships!) is to use a Third Way - that is to Power With! There are other words for it - assertive, strong & kind voice, standing up, etc.
Everyone's strong and kind voice sounds different. It's important to find your own so that you will use it!
Send me a message if you want to learn more, or, if you want me to send you a copy of this poster to print!
