Best selling author and distinguished management consultant Peter Block fast forwards us to the business model of the future: a self-governing, accountable organization where power is shared equally and work has meaning far beyond conventional measures. Join this business visionary as he explores:

  • The community of workers and how faith, service and communication redefine success.
  • How to retain the best co-workers and why it has little to do with money.
  • The high control, low adaptive organization and its roots in the parent-child relationship.
  • What the philosopher-artist can teach us about pure motivation.
  • The controlling boss: the surprising truth about why they do it.
  • Spirituality in the workplace and the hidden strengths of our co-workers.
  • Performance appraisal: obsolete artifact or necessary evil?
  • Breaking the cycle of unfulfillable expectations in the workplace through the partnership model.
  • The Great Questions technique for building skillful communications and trust at work.
  • If we redistribute power do we have to redistribute wealth, too?
  • Compelling real-life examples of the power of stewardship, gained from Peter Block's years of work in both the public and private sectors.

    Concluding with a tough question-and-answer session with Peter Block, The Right Use of Power will help prepare you for the changes, challenges and rewards coming in the new era of business - an era that has already begun. Download and start listening now!
