Your ability to handle power (and your ability to influence people) will increase as you strengthen your inner-independence. Your strong commitment to doing the right thing will fortify it. Your doubt will make it decrease.
Thank you to all the people who sent me their thoughts last week about how to handle power. Here are three.
1. Isn’t real power the ability to empower others? – Wayne Sandberg, Maryland
2. It is sometimes tricky to differentiate between enthusiasm and creativity, and out right drunkenness with power. A little exposure to power tells a lot about a person.
– Marilyn Leck, Washington
3. It’s the “we,” not the “me;” the “ours,” not the “mine” that results in teamwork, ownership, incredible initiatives and outcomes that, ultimately, garner widespread and genuine support. – Jennifer Sinisgalli, Ohio
Please share YOUR thoughts. Thank you.
