Power: In most of the world, it just isn¿t what it used to be. In olden times, some crazy king would give the thumbs-down, and another wretch would lose his head. Not anymore. Today¿s tyrants, bland-faced and impeccably dressed, line up for TV chat shows. They write feel-good books. They seek your acceptance and approval. Not too long ago, the typical CEO was the absolute ruler in his (or, far less often, her) commercial domain. Today, no one in the workplace has such unbridled power. In an age of consensus and collaboration, command and control are out influence and persuasion are in. Exercising power involves the right framing, careful presentation and the strategic use of influence. If you want to learn how to employ these subtle skills, getAbstract suggests turning to this savvy Harvard Business Essentials manual.
