Players get a lot of stuff done without anyone ever knowing.
Power in the shadows is the most effective power there is. Underneath the radar, sight unseen is what the smart Power Players do. Why? Because they know they can manoeuver so much more quickly away from the spotlight.
What matters to Power Players is that they have it: not that people see them wield it. You know you’re truly powerful if very few people know it.
It’s always the puppeteer who pulls the stings behind the show who has the power.
