Managing with Power provides an in-depth look at the role of power and influence in organizations. Pfeffer shows convincingly that its effective use is an essential component of strong leadership. With vivid examples, he makes a compelling case for the necessity of power in mobilizing the political support and resources to get things done in any organization. And he provides an intriguing look at the personal attributes-such as flexibility, stamina, and a high tolerance for conflict-and the structural factors-such as control of resources, access to information, and formal authority-that can help managers advance organizational goals and achieve individual success.
