EMERGE Together,
Better Than Ever

Join Empower Leadership on a new adventure from the comfort of your home!

Adventure is defined as engaging in a new, unique, and exciting experience; specifically the exploration of unknown territory. Prior to 2020, the idea of delivering team building, leadership development, and team outing events virtually (as opposed to in-person) was unknown territory! Back in March, we had a decision to make – adjust and adapt or allow the circumstances, that were entirely out of our control, to dictate our ability to lead, inspire, and empower!

The decision to adjust and adapt was a no-brainer for the Empower Leadership Team – there was an obstacle and we worked together to design an exciting array of engaging and adventurous events for groups that are all delivered via Zoom Video Conferencing. Much like our in-person events, our Virtual EMERGE programs are highly customizable, professionally facilitated, and designed to provide an uplifting boost to your work teams, student/youth groups, or athletic teams.

Customized Experiences, Flexible Pricing, Empowering Results

Thank you for the awesome job you are doing building our community virtually. I have seen teachers laugh and get to know each other, or just enjoy their time together during our online events. That is an important feat to accomplish because we are all about relationships, but COVID has limited what we can do. You are doing great work and we appreciate it!

I have worked with Dan and the Empower Leadership team for over 7 years now with different organizations and continue to come back due their ability to customize the programming to our needs, the energy and enthusiasm they bring to each interaction and the overall positive experience my groups have had each time we hold an Empower event. Even in the current environment, Dan was able to create virtual experiences that were engaging, fun and beneficial for our groups.

Groton Parks and Recreation held a virtual training with Dan from Empower due to the pandemic. I was a bit leery because last year, the staff had a great time (in person) and the success of camp can be directly related to the Empower training. We took the chance and it was very successful! Dan was well prepared and engaging with our staff. Many of the skills he taught were used at camp this year. We really believe it helped clam their fears of “the new camp” this summer. I would highly recommend Empower Leadership’s virtual training for summer camp staff teams!

In a time where nothing has been normal, we found “normal” in an untraditional way with Empower Leadership. In the blink of an eye, our after school program as we knew it had changed. The one thing we knew in that moment, was that we needed to keep our after school program team together and support them. Dan and his team were quick to develop a series of virtual team building meetings for our after school program staff. These virtual workshops/trainings/competitions were crucial in keeping our team intact. It is safe to say, that if a virtual staff meeting is scheduled, the staff hope it’s with Empower Leadership.

We have been lucky enough to work with Empower during these unpredictable times! It has been the most engaging and interactive virtual experience I’ve had – and thanks to the pandemic, I’ve sat through my fair share! Dan has been able to keep our youths engaged and I believe he has even provided a safe enough virtual space that I’ve seen new friendships formed – all through the computer screen. The activities he has created and the environment he offers has been a great experience and I feel as though I have learned a lot from his ability to facilitate groups online. Thank you Dan & Empower Leadership!

Kylie F., Colchester Youth & Social Services

Today’s leaders need to be prepared to execute across digital mediums, as well as the physical. Empower Leadership’s online programming provided an immersive experience that helped bring team-building and personal challenges to the forefront while providing additional flexibility for scheduling.

I recommend Empower Leadership’s online programming to anyone looking for an adaptive and engaging experience. Our students left the training energized and with a clear sense of how to transfer their experiences to their leadership roles on campus.

Chase du Pont, Hamden Hall Country Day School

Running after school programs in a virtual format can be challenging! Finding virtual programming that youths actually want to take part in, is even more challenging! Empower Leadership has a way of keeping over 60 students and staff completely engaged, respectful, and very happy, and that’s no easy feat. These programs allow our students to walk away feeling accomplished. We have tried A LOT of virtual programming, Empower Leadership just gets it!

Megan Dowling, New Britain Parks & Recreation

“We first worked with Empower, and specifically Dan Jaskot, in August 2020. When our regular training site shut down due to the pandemic, Empower Leadership was referred to us by a student leader who had participated in a virtual workshop led by Dan earlier that summer. We have since worked with Dan on at least four occasions over this past year; once in person, and three times virtually. Our program appreciates Dan’s energy and his supportive, fun and encouraging approach to training. I personally appreciate the way Dan takes time before each session, to meet with us and craft the type of program we need, to achieve the end result we desire. It has been a pleasure working with Dan this past year. Moving forward, we plan to continue to work with Dan, even after our regular site resumes operations.”
