The Power of One

Authentic Leadership in Turbulent Times

by Sharif M. Abdullah



The Power of One will change your life! It effectively breaks through the feelings of despair, frustration and alienation we all share about the state of the world and demonstrates how just you alone can transform your neighborhood, workplace or society. By subverting the dominant paradigm of power and leadership, The Power of One shows you how to create a society based on love, compassion, and authenticity. This little book is a revolution in consciousness, and a major milestone on the road to a sustainable future. "The most potent force on the planet today is the power of mobilized people. It is also the one most unused." -- from The Power of One.

The Power of One has been made available through New Catalyst Books. New Catalyst Books is an imprint of New Society Publishers, aimed at providing readers with access to a wider range of books dealing with sustainability issues by bringing books back into print that have enduring value in the field.
