Let's do something a little bit different!

The Power Within Training is a leadership and business development company that operates at the intersection of the most cutting-edge research in neuroscience and the most recent cognitive social psychology discoveries.

It is about what unlocks us, what opens our mind and what allows us to THINK BIGGER, BE BETTER, and ACHIEVE MORE.

The science behind our approach to developing motivational intelligence has won a Nobel Prize and been named as one of the top ten most promising scientific discoveries of the 20th century.

Motivational Intelligence (Mq) is our third level of intelligence, it's the DNA of a growth mindset.

Welcome to the motivational intelligence (Mq) revolution.

I left feeling inspired & motivated to do things differently. James’ unique approach is what makes him and his workshops so engaging, through the storytelling of events of his life and topping them off with a great sense of humour.

TPWT recently ran an intensive two day Sales and Operational Leadership Development workshop for several new and aspiring managers within our organisation. As soon as I spoke with James, I knew he was exactly what we were looking for when we put together our new leadership development programme, an extremely motivating and inspiring few days.

The Business Growth Academy has opened a whole new avenue for my business and thought process, I have learned so much over the last few months. I will be taking the course again as there is just too much to take in and implement. Thanks, James and the team.
