“A refreshing and enlightening new perspective on what it means to be powerful.” – SUSAN CAIN, bestselling author of Quiet An eye-opening exploration of power and how we can harness it using performance techniques borrowed from actors. What if instead of worrying about getting more power, we focus on using the power we do have better? Stanford business professor Deborah Gruenfeld combines 25 years of social psychology research with personal experience to reveal the truth about power: that we all have more than we realise and what counts is what we do with it. Acting with Power shows anyone seeking greater professional and academic success what power is actually for, how to identify it within ourselves, and how to use it constructively using acting techniques. Some of us crave a bigger role, and many of us feel like imposters in our current ones. Acting with Power shows us how to be the best version of ourselves in any role, on any stage.
