If you want to "change lives, change organizations, change the world," the Stanford business school’s motto, you need power.

Is power the last dirty secret or the secret to success? Both. While power carries some negative connotations, power is a tool that can be used for good or evil. Don’t blame the tool for how some people used it.

This is such a good, practical self-help book!

If you love books by Vex King, Robin Sharma and Dale Carnegie definitely give this book a try because it will be so worth it.

A new favourite author I say!

This book has seven short chapters which will give you different practical tips on how you can get things done, make practical choices to advance on whatever you are working for.

A good book for those who need a little push to get up and actually start doing some basic steps that would push you towa

The author shares 7 rules and they are:
1) Get out of your own way.
2) Break the rules.
3) Show up in powerful fashion.
4) Create a powerful brand.
5) Network relentlessly.
6) Use your power.
7) Understand that once you have acquired power, what you did to get it will be forgiven, forgotten, or both.

Now, if there is anything to read on how to get things done at work, while ensuring that your objectives are aligned with your professional growth then these rules are something to bear in mind.

The 7 Rules of Power is a great book harness untapped potential. I enjoyed learning the rules of Power and learning that I already use some of them and how to improve my use of them. I feel like some self-improvement books talk and boast but do not give you the actionable steps this book was not the case. I felt I was given the knowledge and tools needed to apply these rules to my life without the extra fluff some books add in. I was hooked on this audiobook immediately and binge listened to thi ...more

Just like the 42 laws of power, it just feels wrong. I do believe it works. But it's basically: be an overconfident asshole and don't show vulnerability. At least not while on your way to the top, once there you can do whatever you want. I use such literature more as a map to recognize and navigate office politics than a manual for professional conduct. But that probably means I'll bump into a lot of obstacles to reach my ambitions. ...more

This was a a good motivational and self help audiobook. It had practical lessons and short chapters to really focus in on what the author was teaching. I did learn some, although; some of it were things I already knew about. I appreciated his insight. It was good, but I am not for sure if I would recommend to others. I feel there are better motivational books out there.
3/5⭐️ I do appreciate the ARC #Netgalley. All opinions are my own.

I might not „like“ or agree with all that is written here, but it is refreshing to read something that focusses on how things actually are, rather than how it would be nice for them to be.
