Acting With Power

By January 12, 2024No Comments

Are you flexing or wasting your power (or uncomfortable with the notion of having to exert power)?

Acting With Power: Why We Are More Powerful Than We Believe by Deborah Greenfield (New York, Currency / Penguin Random House 2020)

Why you should read it: As with careers, power is more flexible than we’ve been conditioned to believe. Full of research, stories, practice guidance, this book offers a new perspective to help you step into the leadership roles you will be called upon to play at various junctures of your career.  FYI, my copy is tagged, underlined, absolutely dog-eared. 

J. Kelly Hoey

Networking Expert + Career Transformation Coach + Author + Speaker, Kelly Hoey looks at "networking" through a new, modern, fresh lens, offering you (who are pursuing and perhaps struggling with your big ambitions), advice on how to connect for success in a hyper-connected world that is woefully short in its attention span. Her network-building advice is relatable, instilling confidence with actionable insights and practical information.
