    Jeffrey Pfeffer is Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford Business School. A year ago on 97% Effective, I discussed with Jeff his best-selling book, the 7 Rules of Power (HERE: https://tinyurl.com/3y56bzcz). In this episode, we go beyond his book, and get personal: We cover double-binds, intergender comparisons, leadership and likeability – and how Jeff’s views on power have shifted over the past four decades. An honor to ask Jeff tough questions and expose more people to his thought-provoking work that challenges prevailing leadership advice -- and has shaped my own thinking and executive coaching practice.

    • Two problems with the existing research literature on double-binds: Reward-interdependence and intergender comparisons
    • Projecting and Acting…Fake it until you become it
    • “Practice and Get Coaching”
    • Two critical points to keep in mind as you rise as a leader (Machiavelli’s important insight that people forget)
    • A lot of power is generated positionally
    • Being liked vs. your responsibility as a leader
    • Michael’s “zoom out” question: Where Jeff’s views on power, over his career, have most shifted
    • Warmth vs competence
    • Two book recommendations
