The prevailing view of power is that it is authority, control, strength, and status, whereas this book looks at “authentic power” as the ability to inspire others, the ability to heal, and as “quality of being.” Power is a fundamental factor in how we live our lives and what outcomes...
This book is the most fundamental rethinking of the nature of power. The prevailing view of power is that it is authority, control, strength, and status, whereas this book looks at “authentic power” as the ability to inspire others, the ability to heal, and as “quality of being.” Power is a fundamental factor in how we live our lives and what outcomes we are able to achieve. So much so that the quest for power is often perceived as both universal and all-consuming. The success of our quest, however, depends on the validity of our going-in assumptions. Having critically examined the commonly-held beliefs about power, G. Ross Lawford concludes that they are largely invalid, that strategies based on them are ineffective, and the resulting power is more illusory and short-lived than authentic. The Quest for Authentic Power shows that by adopting new ways of thinking about power, we can access a life-transforming, ‘authentic’ power that is available within each of us.
