Authentic power-the power to consistently obtain what we truly desire-comes from within. Such power, the power to determine your own destiny, isn't achieved by imposing your will on others. In fact, Ross Lawford explains, power based on authority, control, strength, and status is not only ineffective, it is usually short-lived or more illusion than reality.
Drawing on psychology, theology, and business, Lawford outlines a new view of power based on authenticity and provides practical pointers for achieving your deepest desires without manipulation, coercion, or intimidation. He provides strategies for applying this new view of power in every aspect of your life-including your work, your family, and personal relationships.

Book Description Berrett-Koehler Publishers. Paperback. Condition: New. 150 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.The prevailing view of power is defined by authority, control, strength, and status. But G. Ross Lawford argues that power based on this model is not only invalid but is short-lived, ineffective, and often illusory. The Quest for Authentic Power shows that by adopting new ways of thinking about power, individuals can achieve authentic power based on the ability to inspire. The author suggests that real power is gained not by egogenerated thoughts but by integrating the capabilities of the mind with the wise direction of the heart. Drawing on spirituality, psychology, theology, and business practices, he illuminates his life-transforming theory: changing ones beliefs about power alters virtually every aspect of how one relates to situations and to people. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781576751473
