254: Use Power for Good and Not Evil, with Dacher Keltner

By Dave Stachowiak

Dacher Keltner: Author of The Power Paradox: How We Gain and Lose Influence* Dacher shows us how to use power for good and the most important ways we can gain and lose influence. Quotes We need to rethink what power is … it’s not necessarily a dirty word. —Dacher Keltner If you can just stay interested in other people and know where their minds are, you will rise in power … and you will keep your power because people will respect you. —Dacher Keltner In today’s collaborative workplace, our power rests critically upon the good work of other people. —Dacher Keltner One of the things that accompanies leadership and power is the privilege of enhancing the lives of other people. —Dacher Keltner I really see power as having an enormous force for good. —Dacher Keltner Resources The Secret to Being a Better Leader: See and Hear Others Feedback Comments, questions, or feedback for future question and answer shows: The next question and answer show is episode 256 If you're not already subscribed to this show, please do so and you’ll get new episodes every Monday.
