For Managers and Leaders in
Government Institutions

What is the Human-Centered
Leadership Toolkit?

The Toolkit is a companion piece for the best-selling book A New Kind of Power: Using Human-Centered  Leadership to Drive Innovation, Equity, and Belonging in Government Institutions. It’s like a field manual to guide managers through an experiential, step-by-step process to build high-performing team culture.

The Toolkit has 3 interactive online courses (see courses on the left).  Each course features video content with reflective exercises that keep the learner engaged.  At the heart of the learning though, are experiential activities that managers perform in real-time with their own teams to get results quickly and bring about immediate positive change. 

Who is this Toolkit for?

This Toolkit is for anyone who leads a team and wants to up their game! The tools are specifically designed for managers in government institutions. However, you don’t have to be a government employee to use it. The skills are transferable to any sector.

We are currently looking for managers willing to try out the early version of our Toolkit to give us feedback and help us grow. Those who purchase a Toolkit by November 15th will get several special bonuses including:


​• Weekly group coaching calls

• The chance to inform modifications to the Human-Centered Leadership Toolkit based on your specific needs and context


• Opportunities to chat directly with Founder Dara Barlin about your ideas for culture transformation
