Unavoidable Power Struggles

All power struggles are about locus of control. Never forget that your control is strongest when your position is dead-center of your own “sphere of influence”, whatever it may look like.

So if you ever find yourself caught in the middle of a power struggle, pay close attention to whose sphere of influence you happen to currently be standing in the center of. And if it’s not your own, review your strategy one more time before you consider flexing any muscles or exerting any effort.

There will be times when this shift in perspective is all that you require to shift the balance of power in your favour. Think about it. Use it.
