One of the hardest tasks of leadership is understanding that you are not what you are, but what you’re perceived to be by others- Edward L. Flom
One rung up the ladder may seem like one small step, but carries with it profound pressures and responsibilities, particularly the challenges inherent in a high-power role: unrealistic expectations of others, lack of honest feedback, and the psychologically altering effects of power. Research shows that power not only alters our state of mind, but also that of others: people treat us differently and relate to us differently, making it hard to get an accurate and honest reflections of ourselves. Leading through this distorting “lens of power” is a challenge for everyone in a role of responsibility, authority, and power.
