Introduction: The problem with power -- When the curtain goes up. The truth about power: what it is, what it isn't, and why it matters -- The two faces of power. The art and science of playing power up ; The art and science of playing power down -- Taking the stage. Getting in character: how to be yourself without losing the plot ; Riding shotgun: how to act with power in a supporting role ; The shoe must go on: making an entrance and owning the spotlight -- Understand abuses of power, and how to stop them. When power corrupts (and when it doesn't) ; How to wrangle a bully: alternatives to playing the victim ; The bystander role and new ways to play it: how to stop bad actors from stealing the show ; How to use power while playing the lead.
Summary: "Most of us tend to think that there are two kinds of people in world: those who have power, and those who don't. But in reality, says Stanford Business School professor Deborah Gruenfeld, we all have more power than we think. And success is not about how much power we have, but rather how we use it. It's often assumed that power flows to those with the highest rank, the loudest voice, or the most commanding presence in the room. But in fact, there exists a quieter, softer sort of power that's just as crucial to learn to wield as the forceful kind. In life just as on stage, sometimes the most powerful actor is the one in the supporting role rather than the lead"--
