THE POWER PARADOX How We Gain and Lose Influence

by | Read by Kaleo Griffith

Contemporary Culture • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrating this enlightening audiobook about the many faces of power, Kaleo Griffith sounds gentle enough to draw listeners into the author's nuanced thinking and strong enough to convey the power in the audiobook's message. His understated speaking voice and intelligent phrasing allow listeners to absorb the idea that power is less about forcing our will on people than about earning their participation through empathy, understanding, and selfless giving. UC Berkeley psychologist Dacher Keltner offers 20 principles that show how this kind of power can be cultivated in all aspects of life, and how leaders can make the mental shift from assuming power to humbly working for the people they serve. His explanation of how arrogance and complacency diminish our connections with our constituencies is timely as we embark upon the final months of the 2016 election campaign.
