Rethinking Communication

Jul 26, 2021

Matthew Barzun is the former U.S ambassador to Sweden and the United Kingdom, and in his new book, The Power of Giving Away Power, Matthew lays out a shift in how to think about power and leadership.


In so many areas of our lives, power is seen as a pyramid, where the people at the top make the decisions, create the ideas, and determine the course of action. Matthew makes the case for the constellation mindset, where we rely on individual parts coming together to form something greater and grander than previously thought possible.


Matthew asks some big questions that challenge our concepts of what winning and losing looks like, and how we approach our disagreements.
