Overview

Phenomenal success has always been inextricably linked with the manipulation of naked power. We are automatically drawn towards powerful people, not just because of the power they may have over us, but also to witness the exercise of power itself, to watch them wield power over others. But power doesn't only attract us, its excess and corrupting influences also repel us. Power is the last dirty word in business and the corporate world is one of the few terrains left where one can exercise extreme forms of power over others without any public censure. In The Power Game Gerry Griffin explodes the taboo of power. In a series of interactive, illuminating and insightful games Griffin explores both personal and corporate power. Whether you want to negotiate a pay rise and achieve promotion or combat new competitors and increase market share, The Power Game will help you change your life.
