A helpful book for anyone in formal leadership, or just wants to have influence with others. Keltner is a research psychologist who makes the case that power and influence aren’t taken or exerted, but earned through a selfless and humble posture.

Not necessarily new ideas here, but ideas that aren’t widely practiced either. And this is one of the most helpful books I’ve read for outlining them. It left me both encouraged and challenged.
