The skills most important to obtaining power and leading effectively are the very skills that deteriorate once we have power. ~ Dacher Keltner

Power is paradoxical in the sense that the less power an individual exhibits the more power that person actually has. Superiors who practice empathy earn respect and loyalty. Being considerate enhances effectiveness in exercising power when needed.

The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace. ~ Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi
