Do you have the power to get things done?

Your ability to lead and influence others is based on your power. Power is a complex combination of one's knowledge, expressiveness, history, character, and attraction, as well as one's resources, position, network, and reputation. Understanding the sources of power and knowing how to amass it is the ultimate key to success.

Drawn from groundbreaking research on the very nature of power, The Elements of Power examines how people use and lose power, how power works in organizations, and the relationship between power and leadership. Complete with a handy self-assessment, this fascinating book is an essential tool you can leverage to motivate, influence, and inspire others, and to achieve greatness in every realm of your life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “If you’ve ever wished that someone would pull back the curtain so you could learn from the use (or abuse) of power by the likes of Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Eliot Spitzer, Indra Nooyi, Rahm Emanuel, Warren Buffett, and Jeff Bezos, your wish has been granted. The Elements of Power neatly dissects the art and science of influence and leadership as practiced by leaders from every part of the globe.”

    Tom Connellan, bestselling author of Inside the Magic Kingdom

  • The Elements of Power is a banquet of ideas on the use of power for the price of an inexpensive dinner for two. It even has the added advantage of being both tasty and healthful.”
