Laws of Power #10

This week’s law of power may be a controversial one and it is one that I struggle with because I am the type of person who likes to care for people. The way that I apply it in my life and work is to think about what lifeguards are trained to do.

Laws of Power #9

This week, I talk about something that comes up everywhere: office politics. If you work in an office, it will happen to you. More after the jump.

Laws of Power #6

This week, I talk about getting attention for yourself. What works for companies (commonly known as hype) can work for the individual as well.

Laws of Power #4

A little late with this one, but better late than never. This week I talk about the value of keeping your mouth shut.

Laws of Power #3

This week’s laws of power talks about concealing your intentions until the last possible second so as to confuse others (typically an enemy or competitor) of your real goal. One of my business life lessons was learned the hard way through this law. Being on the receiving end is a very lasting reminder.
