Your Power

Today i am just #workingOutLoud reflecting on Power. We inhabit not one, but multiple systems of power: some codified, formal and visible, others hidden, or highly contextual. But all interacting in different ways with one another.

Power does not operate on simple gradients, from senior to junior, from rule based to anarchy: sometimes a gentle power can run around behind a formal one. Reputation can trump position, authenticity can trump expertise.

In general, the Social Age sees a rebalancing of power, and the Pandemic has fractured legacy models (largely based in space, ownership, and control). So power is all to play for.

Power and Potential is an enquiry framework for ‘Power’ in Social Leadership, available free here.
