In this book, Oscar David, an organisation psychologist and boardroom consultant, relates stories, often very personal ones, and draws from his abundant experience in his search for the many elements that make up power. He also introduces a new model of power. In addition to power 1.0, based on our primeval instincts to take charge, and power 2.0, which is all about control and regulations, there is power 3.0: exercising power with integrity.
‘Power is the great taboo of organisations – and of relationships – yet it is probably one of the major factors in our well-being in life and work. Oscar David brings a truly unique perspective as a business consultant and coach, combining these narratives with gripping personal stories to this central ingredient of human relationships.’
