Mahan shares why we need to think about power differently in society or organizations. The reasons for a shift away from the old power models based on hierarchies to new power models based on aligned movements. Mahan uses this example to show the need for a change of thinking in organizations with a greater need to align around purpose. Finally, Mahan shares the origins of the Stockdale Paradox and how that relates to the survival and success of all movements and change initiatives.
