Yet when you have it, you're often filled with exasperation. Annoyed and frustrated by and with the power you have. So many decisions end up in your Inbox. Didn't you hire the best people and tell them to get things done?
Is the answer to keep power to yourself? And lord it over others?
Or, do you . . . give it away?
Can you, as a leader, create power in your organization by giving it away?
I am thrilled to have Matthew Barzun, author of The Power of Giving Away Power, join the Awesome Leader community for a discussion on June 29 at 8 am PT/11 am ET/16:00 GMT.
Matthew and I worked together at CNET (we taught workshops together!), and I'm so excited and grateful he's sharing his insight and experience with us. Giving away the power, right?
