Learn more about Michael Wenderoth, Executive Coach: www.changwenderoth.com SHOW NOTES: Jeffrey Pfeffer is Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford Business School. We discuss his latest book, the 7 Rules of Power, and where his research and views clash with the prevailing leadership advice. What an honor to ask Jeff tough questions and expose more people to his thought-provoking work that has helped so many people build more power in their lives. Three reasons why Jeff wrote his latest book on Power Defining power – and how it differs from Influence Does 7 Rules teach people to be narcissists? Why he doesn’t write about ethics How his book – and my coaching – is not about transforming people’s personalities, but is about the specific skills and behaviors, that if people learn and master, can make them more influential and effective Why “Rule #1: Get Out of Your Own Way” is the most important- and how people can do this in an accelerated fashion The role of coaching in helping us explore our mental models, self-inhibiting behaviors -- and trying out new ones that may help us grow How success and power provide its own insulation (Rule #7 and how power is “variance amplifying”) and why we should stop worrying so much about the consequences of breaking the rules and engaging in certain behaviors, and instead “getting on with it” Why we should be wary of “showing our whole selves at work” – and what we should do instead Jeff challenges us to more precisely define “success” and “good” Michael personally thanks Jeff: shares how Jeff deeply impacted his own trajectory – and heavily influenced his book, Get Promoted, which focuses on how to coach people as they navigate power dynamics at work. Jeff shares how coaching is an essential part of human development, and how it can help people wrestle with concepts that may not come naturally, given the current zeitgeist BIO AND LINKS: Jeffrey Pfeffer is the Thomas D.
