Each week Ellen Didrichsen from BigIdeasGrowingMinds publishes a, short, animated summary of a book related to leadership development and personal growth. This week’s Big Idea is The Power Paradox, by Dacher Keltner.

Apply the Power Paradox to your Sustainability Career

Thinking about the concepts shown in the video ask yourself:

  1. What difference are you making / can you make in the world in regards to sustainability? This is power!
  2. If power is given, not grabbed – then what can you contribute, in order to lift your sustainability force?
  3. If you are feeling powerless, what could you do to overcome this?

  1. Hi Bruce, Thanks for sharing! I learned a lot from reading this book! I love the idea that Power is given and not grabbed. It means the ‘fear’ will only get you so far while ‘compassion’ and ’empathy’ will sustain in the long run as well! What’s not to love about that!?!?

    1. Hi Ellen, thank YOU for doing such a great summary! For me it was a good reminder to give, with happiness 🙂
