Kasia Urbaniak

My name is Kasia Urbaniak

I teach women to profoundly expand their personal power and influence in a world that is screaming for it.

Welcome to The Academy.
 

 


How does the silencing of women begin?

Three tools I teach will improve the life of every woman I know.

They're so valuable that I want you to have them for free.

 
 
Kasia defines dominant and submissive states originally and practically. The online videos are profound, provocative and relevant.

"Having a job that put me in the position of negotiating with powerful men, from NATO generals to local militia leaders in Northern Nigeria, I always struggled to bring my feminine energy into the room. I felt my only option was to adopt the masculine style of leadership.

Kasia showed me a different, and equally powerful way. Suddenly I had the tools to dig myself out. My attention had been so focused inward that I was not able to truly be heard.

After 20 years of peacebuilding and working as a conflict mediator, I walked out from Power With Men 101 with far more skills than any formal training had provided me."

I’ve had conversations in my marriage that were never possible before. And there’s an almost effortless shift in the tiny day-to-day “compromises”— resignation, really — that was chewing away at my happiness on the margins. I see more opportunity for us than ever before.

"Over a 20-year career in international aerospace business development, I have routinely presented to, negotiated with, and closed multimillion-dollar deals with rooms solely comprised of men – including multinational CEOs, government ministers and Generals across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Very rarely was there another woman in the room.

Foundations of Power exponentially improved my ability to read and influence power dynamics in the room, move past any moments of speechlessness or uncertainty, make and receive requests powerfully and negotiate successfully at all levels."

 
 
I had imagined that I was going to learn how to find my power by having dominion over men. In fact, what I learned was many of the ways that I, as a woman, had been unconsciously contained by rules, boundaries, and beliefs. Once these were tested in the classroom, I learned that they were illusory.

I knew nothing about what true power was. When I began studying at The Academy, I thought power was control. I found out that power is influence and that it is only about the truth in a mutually aware and responsive dynamic.

Kasia and Ruben are masterful teachers who will challenge you, ask more than you think you can give . . . and make you feel safe in the giving. Beyond the skills learned, the relationships forged in the academy are a fierce sisterhood so needed in this world. Invest in yourself, and join The Academy.
