How you handle your power is going to be the biggest judge of your long-term success. I was once advised, “If you want to find out about someone, give them a little power. It will reveal everything.”
Do you know powerful people who have fallen from grace? If not, you have certainly read about some. When you look into the background situation, they all lose their power for the same reason: ego.
How do you gain power?
My favorite leadership quote for men and women empowerment is this one from Confucius:
“All things come to the person who is modest and kind in a high position.”
