The Power Paradox: How We Gain and Lose Influence
Education Psychology Library, Seminar Room
Professor Dacher Keltner will be speaking about his new book, The Power Paradox: How We Gain and Lose Influence (http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/power_paradox), which synthesizes his twenty years of scientific research on power. How we handle power impacts our happiness, our stress, and our physical health — as well as that of people around us.
Dacher Keltner is famous for his ability to make complex psychological research interesting and actionable (he and Paul Ekland were responsible for the science behind Pixar’s Inside Out, for just one example!) Join us for a fascinating discussion with Professor Keltner on the timely and important topics explored in his new book.
