Today, more than ever we are witnessing the downfall of those in positions of high status & power. From celebrities, athletes, politicians, organizational and ministry leaders; individuals are continuing to fall, with regrettable ramifications in the lives of so many. Power can and often does change people. The influence of power is a critical component of success in every organization, or group. While most focus on how leaders can use their power to influence the performance of their followers; this timely presentation addresses the real issues of how power can affect the behavior of those in power, ultimately contributing to at-risk behavioral episodes. A Power Surge can occur when the social power a person has, collides with their willpower (self-control), resulting in behavioral outages influenced by their power, which are undesirable, regrettable, and often irreparable.

Sex Narrative™

Sexual misconduct in the form of sexual assault, rape, or sexually inappropriate behavior can be difficult to determine fault after the fact.

Most individuals are unaware of how and why two individuals can often see the same sexual encounter differently. Dr. Shavers' researched based presentation provides a unique perspective for audiences to understand the influence an imbalanced power environment can have on individuals’ sexual perceptions and behaviors.
