Have you ever wondered how some people have gotten into the position they have? It might be someone you think is really bad at their job, yet they keep getting the plumb assignments.
That is actually what led me to pick up this book. Power – why some people have it and other’s don’t, is a look at what characteristics drive people into positions of power. It isn’t about performance. It is about getting noticed, getting your foot in the right door, and then doing things strategically that keep you there.
This book is a very practical guide to accomplishing these things, whether you are trying to take a power position at the top of a company or within your own department or team. It provides some counterintuitive advice that may allow you to make major gains through small adjustments. It also provides a no-holds-barred discussion of the price you pay for holding power.
Whether your goal is to become powerful or not, this book can provide you with a great understanding of human and corporate dynamics that will make you more effective at getting what you want.
