A Relational Leadership Certification Program by PowHERhouse

PowHERhouse champions the changework of relational leaders and social impactors. We are a community of practice, story-platform and a constellation network for social impacters who are walking a path of relational leadership for future generations. 


PowHERhouse amplifies and accelerates the changework of relational leaders for a more integrated, interconnected and intentional world. 


Everything we do is guided by ancestral and Indigenous wisdom which, more often than not, is Matriarchal and Matrilineal in nature. This is where the HER comes from in our name.


AMPLIFY is offered with a decolonized and relational leadership approach, bringing together the very best of what PowHERhouse has to offer. 


Everything we do is guided by Indigenous and Ancestral wisdom and is offered from a decolonized approach. 

AMPLIFY INCLUDES

  • RELATIONAL LEADERSHIP CERTIFICATION - twelve module program with one on one support, circle-based mentorship, bridge of Indigenous/ancestral wisdom with western conscious leadership practices

  • STORYTELLING / MEDIA TRAINING  - a six module relational communications and media storytelling curriculum.

  • AMPLIFY PROFILE on our media platform - an EPK (electronic press kit) which includes 3 Editorial, and 3 Video segments (and more).

  • 90 DAY WHOLE-LEADER RESILIENCE - a well-being and resilience co-hort for integrated, sustainable, whole leaders.

How Does it Work?

A twelve month decolonized learning path that shifts and adapts to the needs of today's relational leaders. Being a relational leader requires a heart-centred approach that factors in the needs of the individual, their circle of care, and their personal rhythm of achievement and accountability. To support a whole leader, their whole self is factored into their personalized learning path.

What People and Organizations are Saying about PowHERhouse

“Learning Journeys: Pathways for Immigrant Women was a 2 year participatory research project coming to an end. As co-creator and co-lead of the project, I was determined to share the rich learnings of the project. Yet we were running out of time, and taking on a new media partner and embarking on the inevitable learning and sharing curve that the process would entail created in me some trepidation. Sandrine and I both could see from the website and a previous meeting that PowHERhouse's work imbued a beauty, authenticity and groundedness that resonated with what Learning Journeys was all about, so we took our chances and jumped in. ”

Pacific Immigrant Resource Society

“I am absolutely blown away by what PowHERhouse has been able to accomplish. There is so much value in facilitating discussions with changemakers - which is exactly what PowHERhouse did. I was honoured to be invited to not only participate, but to share my perspective during a Coffee and a Conversation on the second day with Sara Wolfe. My perspective was just one piece of an entire inspiring agenda. Going forward, Charlene and the PowHERhouse team are going to be an essential piece to building an inclusive innovation ecosystem. You can 100% count me in for future PowHERhouse events!! The opportunity to listen to so many diverse perspectives is important and something I really value.”

Ashley Richard - WEKH National University of Manitoba

“Hilti Canada formally announces our partnership with Charlene SanJenko and PowHERhouse Impact Media Group, an Indigenous-owned social impact organization. Together, we are working towards building better relationships, learning from, and supporting the Canadian Indigenous community by embedding the conversation of Indigenous issues into #Hilti culture and at all levels of the organization.”

Martina McIsaac, Region Head & CEO of Hilti North America

FAQ

  • Can an organization take part in Amplify or is this strictly a program for an individual?

    Everything included on the Amplify path can be adapted to work within a group setting.

  • Do I need to be Canadian to take this program?

    You can be part of our global community, and the section of the curriculum that address Canada's history of colonization can be adapted to reflect the relationship you have with colonization based on where you come from.

  • You say Amplify is adaptable, how does that work?

    Because AMPLIFY has four distinctly separate parts: The Leader Path (gym), First Steps (co-hort), Individual support and tutorials, plus the online program, everything in Amplify can flex with your life schedule.

  • This is a lot of material! How many hours a week do I need to commit to something like this?

    We suggest 3-4 hours/week, mostly on your own time, working within your life rhythm.

  • Who takes this program?

    Great question! Mostly, leaders who are ready to bridge their western, individualistic ways of leading with relational ways of being in the world.

  • When you say Indigenous and Ancestral, what does that mean?

    PowHERhouse Turtle Island (that's us) recognizes Indigenous as the First People of this place (Canada and North America). When we say ancestral, we are speaking to the settler history of North America (and other colonized countries) and inviting and acknowledging the wisdom from places, not of North America.

  • Why Indigenous and Ancestral Wisdom?

    To help us all remember that this earth is our home, and each other is our family.
