(Picture by usanetworks.com)

In the spirit of our study of "Power Dynamics" for 2018, we are going to be reading and sharing the things we learn from the following books.

Gene Simmons on Power (by Gene Simmons):

You deserve to have power.
It is yours for the taking.
Gene Simmons is her to unlock the doors to the temple.

He Who Has The Gold Makes the Rules.

The Secret Handshake (by Kathleen Kelly Reardon PhD.):

This book is like a crash course in business psychology 101.

How To Get Anyone To Do Anything (by R. Phillip Hanes):

This is such an infectious book!!  It made me want to rush straight out and get someone to do something at once.

Power (by Jeffrey Pfeffer):

Jeff did an immense service to the work with this work, blending academic rigor and practical genius into a wonderfully readable text.

Executive Warfare (by David F. D'Alessandro):

When it comes to straight talk about what it really takes to thrive in business, no one does it better today than David.

48 Laws Of Power (by Robert Greene):

For those who want power, watch power, or want to arm themselves against power. This is the book for you.

We hope that the information we learn and pass on to you this year will be helpful to you as you learn to navigate better in the area of Power Dynamics.

Remember as always that these lessons can help you not only in your career but also in life and in your other relationships.

To Wear A Watch or To Not To Wear A Watch (That Is The Question..)

watches, watch, power, power dynamic, schenkorg, personal power,

We recently did a post on SchenkOrg.com about this question.

Are you perceived more powerful if you wear a watch? Or if you don't wear a watch?

The Green Light...

Maybe you've seen them around town? Maybe you haven't.

As you drive around your town maybe you see some houses with a Green Light on, or maybe you notice a store which has a green light on in the evening?

My Notes:

Simple truths are often the most elusive, overlooked, and forgotten.”

Our decisions make us who we are. The lines between success and failure, friendship and missed connection, happiness and unhappiness, barrier and breakthrough, are far thinner than we might imagine. Our mentality, and the decisions we make based on that mentality, play a huge role in our trajectory through life.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”  - JOHAN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE

My notes:

From my training as a therapist, I knew that time doesn’t heal anything; it’s how we deal with that time that determines the speed at which we heal.

A journey through grief is an individual process, but loving friends and family certainly helped.
