Mark Power has over 30 years of experience supporting, training and coaching people to bring their lives into alignment with their most important values. His approach uses his Four Core Strengths of Presence (physical, cognitive, emotional and relational) to develop self-awareness, deepen self-acceptance, and lead with self-confidence.
As young man he went “on the road” exploring North America. It was a formative experience of self-discovery, provoking a lasting desire to discover what it means to be authentic. Mark has studied with teachers of the Buddhist tradition who introduced him to contemplative methods that he has practiced throughout his life and that form a cornerstone for his transformational work with others. Professionally, he has also served as a chaplain in hospice and palliative care. The depth of his experience has equipped him with exceptional skill and sensitivity for effectively guiding individuals to create strategies for living fully. His love of art and poetry, and writing add creative depth to his coaching and facilitation.
Mark is certified by the Hudson Institute of Coaching, and a partner in Life Positioning, Inc. in Shenzhen, China and North America. He serves as adjunct faculty at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business where he teaches MBA students “Mindful Presence: The Hidden Strength of a Leader”. He has served as a leader and teacher with the Nalandabodhi Buddhist community for many years. And, Mark is a board-certified chaplain (BCC).
He lives with his wife in Red Hook, New York – in the heart of the Hudson Valley – and is the proud father of two talented daughters and an amazing granddaughter.
