Power Play: Power is winning the heart, not breaking the spirit
Monday, August 5, 2013/
People take the side of a Power Player when they have free will. Remember, there’s nothing to be gained by forcing someone’s hand.
Power Players hope to convince their audience that they are right – and that they should choose to follow them. There’s nothing to be gained by breaking somebody down and forcing their hand. It’s bad news for all concerned.
Power Players are experts in gathering volunteers rather than hostages. They want people to deliberately choose to back the cause and not do what needs to be done begrudgingly. It never works out well and is a recipe for unmitigated disaster.
In every war ever fought in the history of mankind, soldiers who were drafted into the conflict were never victorious.
If your heart’s not in it, it’s futile. And Power Players know this all too well.
