"Principles of Power can be related to as an advanced Coaching Handbook for Leaders. If you are a leader, an aspiring leader, a coach, consultant, or program facilitator, this book is designed for you. The material is delivered inside of a modern leadership context of service and contribution. Eric features many partnerships in Principles of Power. His inclusion of useful quotes from Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger, Werner Erhard, Nassim Taleb, Seth Godin, and many other leaders attests to the thinking and the research that went into the writing of this book. It is now undeniable that the understanding and implementation of powerful Listening, authentic Relationship, and a recognizable Permission to Lead, are cardinal distinctions of effective leadership. The word, ’cardinal’ has a Latin root and means ‘hinge’ – like a hinge on a gate. So, like a hinge, cardinal distinctions are connected to every nuance of leadership. You will see these distinctions in action in the background of Eric’s many leadership conversations. Authentic Relationship, for example, is essential to the effectiveness and empowerment of the participants and the leader. If authentic Relationship is missing, any outcome or result devolves to the result of domination or force, and is not an outcome of effective leadership. Consider this: Leadership is granted by the permission of those being led. Take a moment and allow that to sink in. The job of the leader is that of an environmentalist, providing the space for people to collaborate, flourish, and create. These two different activities, management and leadership are often commingled, especially in business schools and in the workplace. They are distinct and operate under different rules and measures. It’s like Checkers and Chess – Same game board, different games with different rules and outcomes. Disentangling and distinguishing the two arenas of activity grants power to both managers and leaders. So, the fundamental exercise of listening for people’s greatness is in the background of every sentence in this book. And there is much more…Principles of Power is strongly influenced by the transformational work of Werner Erhard. Much of the author’s thinking is also grounded in the classic distinctions of Tribal Leadership and the thinking of Warren Buffet and his partner, Charlie Munger. Those, plus Eric’s own extensive practical experience renders Principles of Power to be an extremely useful ‘go-to’ resource, filled with useful, implementable information, sprinkled liberally with memorable quotations from intelligent diverse sources – all apt and worth adding to YOUR leadership lexicon."- John King, co-author of Tribal Leadership
People into leadership, personal development. Same people who would read Mark Manson's: Art of not Giving a Fuck....or Gary Bishop's Unfuck yourself.
