Best selling author and distinguished management consultant Peter Block fast forwards us to the business model of the future: a self-governing, accountable organization where power is shared equally and work has meaning far beyond conventional measures. Join this business visionary as he explores:
The "community" of workers and how faith, service and communication redefine success.
How to retain the best co-workers and why it has little to do with money.
The "high control, low adaptive" organization and its roots in the parent-child relationship.
What the philosopher-artist can teach us about pure motivation.
The "controlling" boss: the surprising truth about why they do it.
Spirituality in the workplace and the hidden strengths of our co-workers.
Performance appraisal: obsolete artifact or necessary evil?
Breaking the cycle of "unfulfillable expectations" in the workplace through the partnership model.
The "Great Questions" technique for building skillful communications and trust at work.
If we redistribute power do we have to redistribute wealth, too?
Compelling real-life examples of the power of stewardship, gained from Peter Block's years of work in both the public and private sectors.
Concluding with a tough question-and-answer session with Peter Block, The Right Use of Power will help prepare you for the changes, challenges and rewards coming in the new era of business - an era that has already begun.
