Some immediate thoughts of mine:
- Leverage of Ideas (with mass Acceptance) ---> Social Power.
- Leverage of Money ---> Financial Power.
- Leverage of Social power & Financial power ---> Political power.
- Leverage of Unity, participation & the strength of numbers ---> People power.
This is a sentence that I had heard during an MBA class, quoted by our amazing Professor:
"Power comes from dependence. If you depend on somebody, they hold power over you".
Here are some interesting articles:
Here is an interesting paragraph from a link above:
"Have you ever been in a meeting and said something that almost nobody noticed, yet a few minutes later, someone else said exactly the same thing and everyone in the group paid attention, perhaps even praised the “brilliant” idea she/he had? In thinking about this, you may have thought that the person who repeated your idea had a great deal of leverage (or power) in the group".
This blog is incomplete. I am still working on it. But the idea behind this blog is so exciting, that I am not ashamed to put out a half-baked cake (made of thoughts) for display this instance, LOL.
