"This book offers the groundwork for making choices that allow you to spend more time on the things you care about and less time on those you'd rather skip. Your relationships will have more warmth, your productivity will increase, and your life will feel more meaningful." — Kim Scott, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Candor



This program includes an introduction read by the authors.



Introducing The Power of Agency, a science-backed approach to living life on your own terms. Agency is the ability to act as an effective agent for yourself—reflecting, making creative choices, and constructing a meaningful life. Grounded in extensive psychological research, The Power of Agency gives you the tools to help alleviate anxiety, manage competing demands and help you live your version of success.

Renowned psychology experts Paul Napper and Anthony Rao will help you break through your state of overwhelm by showing you how to access your personal agency with seven empowering principles: control stimuli, associate selectively, move, position yourself as a learner, manage your emotions and beliefs, check your intuition, deliberate and then act.

Featuring stories of people who have successfully applied these principles to improve their lives, The Power of Agency will give you the insights and skills to build your confidence, conquer challenges, and live more authentically.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The deceptive simplicity of The Power of Agency is rooted in the authors’ close acquaintance with the complexity of modern life; their genius lies in their ability to show us precisely how to run our own lives rather than to allow our lives to run us.”

    Edward Hallowell, M.D.
