Event description


What is the Subtle POWER program?

Leadership is the ability to produce valuable results with and through people. The Subtle POWER program is a 3-day intensive for  leaders who want to produce performance breakthroughs without force or manipulation. It is a transformational training in effective communcation, creativity, and the power of integrity. Anyone whose success depends on the performance of the people they work with will benefit from gaining Subtle POWER.

Does the Subtle POWER program produce business value?

The program’s method has a twenty year track record of upgrading human performance in Fortune 100, middle market, and small cap companies across multiple verticals, cultures, and continents. Applying Subtle POWER tools produces measurable increases in core business results (ROIC, EBITDA ratio, etc.) of 1.2X to 5X for our clients worldwide. People typically experience a 3X increase in the time they have available to accomplish valuable tasks. Over 94% of past participants have said that the program was their most valuable learning experience ever and produced excellent business value.

How is the Subtle POWER program different?

Traditional seminars on communication and leadership describe the habits, best practices, and attitudes of successful leaders. Only reading and talking about those things doesn’t give you the ability to do them or to live them. Just as you can’t learn to play a musical instrument by watching others perform, you can’t become an effective, masterful leader by knowing and understanding alone. Leadership is an ability enabled by certain skills, attitudes, and perspectives. It happens in live action between people in real life situations. To increase your ability to lead, you need to practice.

The Subtle POWER program is grounded in reality - physical results and the observable facts of the human condition. The program’s method is based in experiential action learning rather than the more traditional information transfer model of education. You can’t do this program “sitting on the sidelines,” observing, and taking notes. The value you receive is proportional to the degree you participate and apply what you learn. You will work on immediately relevant business issues in open group discussions, small groups, one-on-one discussions, presentations, role-playing, and readings. There will be little lecture/presentation as such.

Because it is a skill development program, not an ideology, Subtle POWER works across all cultures, age groups, and genders.  The program’s effects are permanent. You will find the learning to be naturally integrated into your daily experience long after the training is complete. You may lose some competence if you don’t practice, but the abilities and skills will always be available to you.

Your leadership readiness qualifications and your areas of growth and development

Practical tools of communication, mindfulness, and leadership:

How to use language to shift the groups you lead into Execution Mode
How to transform your most persistent problems into tasks to be accomplished
How to discern your own and other’s real intentions in conversation
How to cause committed action and clear accountability in yourself and others

“Gabriel taught me the timeless secrets of business success. The skills and tools enabled me to create extraordinary results with my people in less time. I use the skills every day at work and at home. I highly recommend LUMENT.”

Mike Kawasaki, GM, Next Generation of Test, Agilent Technologies

“What would become possible for your business if your team stopped pretending and manipulating each other? What if they stopped unnecessarily sharing their points of view in wasteful meetings and presentations? What if they stopped arguing unproductively with their colleagues? I actually know what happens from my own experience: people stop generating drama, waste, and fear; they start producing valuable business results. The Leadership, Creativity, and Power framework makes that possibility a practical reality.… In addition to causing breakthrough results at Medley, the approach has helped my colleagues and me produce dramatic improvements in our personal lives as well.

Seth Taube, Director, Medley Capital

“Gabriel Sakakeeny and his colleagues proved to be expert guides through corporate transformation and remarkable coaches to those who are ready to embrace a quality of leadership and accountability that is of extreme value in today’s business environment. I’ve had the pleasure of participating more than once in workshops designed to deliver breakthrough results led by Gabe and his team. My team and I benefited deeply from the experience and, in subsequent years, people have remarked upon the language of accountability that has become part of my day-to-day vocabulary and existence as a result.”

Debbora Ahlgren, CMO, Rudolph Technologies Inc.

“Gabe was the master program leader for the program that I attended. The training I received enabled our group to perform at higher levels of productivity and to become more results oriented. Gabe and his team are masterful change agents. The program was exceptional in creating effective action in individuals and teams. Most programs are forgotten within a few days or weeks. LUMENT’s program was hands down the best ever at maintaining action and implementation over the long-term, and it GETS RESULTS.”

Mark Kithkart, Vice President, AVRS Inc.
