The Power Handbook

Power is a necessity - without it, we can't control our own lives. And yet, power has a negative connotation, often associated with manipulation. The two are not synonymous. The inability to use power in a non-manipulative manner is the root cause of both individual despair and organizational immobility. Combining interpersonal effectiveness with the ability to use power effectively is the key to individual and organizational effectiveness.

Containing numerous planning guides and self-scoring questionnaires, The Power Handbook is designed to help you define your own unique path to success. The guides are designed to help build a plan of action. The questionnaires stimulate self-insight and encourage the challenging of "old ways" and assumptions.

The Power Handbook is about people, power, and, above all, success. It addresses a number of key questions:

  • Is power a dirty word?
  • Do you have confidence in your goals?
  • What the six kinds of power and how can you acquire more of each?
  • What are your options as you try to influence others?
  • Is manipulation a viable option?
  • What does it take to be interpersonally effective?
  • How can you make sure you're "in the flow?"
  • Is your position an asset or a liability?
