If so, you may find some solace and tips in the blog I posted yesterday on Big Think, “The Vulnerability of Power.” It’s natural to think that power, once obtained, grows. But, in actuality, those in power, especially the predictable among us, put themselves in power jeopardy all the time. It takes an astute observer to determine where the vulnerability lies and how to manage someone with real or perceived power or to do your part to take that power away.
People with power are vulnerable, too, because those with less of it observe them carefully — far more so than the powerful who may assume that they no longer need to be so observant. This makes them vulnerable. Stop by Big Think to see if you can change the way power is lorded over you.
