How to build more personal power
from MIT Sloan Management Review
It's a classic career management challenge: dealing with those times when the power we need is not the power we have. Jean-Louis Barsoux and Cyril Bouquet, a senior research fellow and a professor of strategy respectively at IMD in Lausanne, Switzerland, call this the moment when we are a "power-deficient executive," or PDE. They say that it's a common ailment and a role that most executives will experience at some point in their careers. Reasons range from the demographic group an executive is in to the level of his or her experience to personality quirks.
