We all want to be in control - of our jobs, our relationships, our lives. However, the autocratic behaviours stemming from our desire for control are proving less effective in today's more participative organizational cultures. Here, Richard Hallstein uses revealing anecdotes and personal examples to show us how we manifest our constant struggle for control, making our work and our lives more difficult for ourselves and those around us. And he offers practical help for learning more participative styles of managing and living a more joyous and satisfying life. Written with an intimacy rare in business books, the 21 vignettes in this enlightening and entertaining confession evoke twinges of recongition in all of us. Through Hallstein's experiences, we recognize our own autocratic behaviours - encouraging competition instead of collaboration; hanging on to power instead of sharing it; even surrounding ourselves with people just like us in order to avoid conflict. His prescription for overcoming the autocrat within us not only creates new possibilities for getting a job done, but releases us from having to know everything, do everything and control everything.
