Description

Brimming with counterintuitive advice, numerous examples from various countries, and surprising findings, this groundbreaking guide reveals the strategies and tactics that separate the winners from the losers. Power is a force that can be used and harnessed not only for individual gain but also for the benefit of organizations and society. Power, however, is not something that can be learned from those in charge — their advice often puts a rosy spin on their ascent and focuses on what should have worked, rather than what actually did. Instead, Pfeffer reveals the true paths to power and career success. Iconoclastic and grounded in the realpolitik of human interaction, Power is an essential organizational survival manual and a new standard in the field of leadership and management.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Here is a highly effective lesson on acquiring, using, and keeping power in organizational settings. Narrator David Drummond's phrasing lacks the variability that might have given this book more personality. But overall his narration is engaged and genuine. In 13 well-organized chapters, the author tells how to network with, position oneself with, speak with, and identify with powerful people. He's especially adept at convincing his audience to give up the mistaken belief that achievements alone will be enough to earn power--the "fair world" assumption. The activism and skills he recommends are illustrated by vivid case studies. The result is a well-delineated reality check for executives with frustrated ambitions and stalled careers. T.W.
