Enlightened Power: How Women Are Transforming The Practice of Leadership
Linda Coughlin, Ellen Wingard and Keith Hollihan, Editors
Review by C.S. Clarke,Ph.D.


Enlightened Power is a power in and of itself: it is a potent reference and guidebook for leaders of every sort that shows the many caring and compassionate uses of power. Leadership comes hand-in-hand with power. If the leader is trained, educated and/or experienced in the effective and beneficial uses of power -- and practices the benevolent use of power -- his or her organization will grow and thrive under that leadership. Enlightened Power has the potential to make a real impact on both new and experienced leaders who read it with a desire to learn how to use power for real long-term success.

Because it has different expert authors for each chapter, this edited book provides you with a variety of viewpoints and experiences. And the editors have blended the disparate viewpoints, individual approaches and divergent experiences into a whole that illuminates the theme.

In Enlightened Power, there are 40 strong and unique voices of women (and one man) who have learned how to develop and use power. It is another of the number of books lately published for and about women that are actually of interest to both genders.

Each chapter is enjoyable and quick to read. Sensible, persuasive, concise and compelling. Every one of those authors knows how to share their knowledge and experience. Their enlightenment becomes yours.
