Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms
How Power Works in Our Hyperconnected World and How to Make It Work for You
Talks at Google, 2018
The new model has taken down titans, but new and old power models can combine to create powerful organizations.
Harvey Weinstein was powerful, but the new power model took him out in the #MeToo tsunami, as co-authors Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms explain during this Talks at Google episode about their book, New Power. They cite Airbnb, which merged new and old power modes to overcome a pending California regulation by hiring lobbyists and deploying hosts as door-to-door advocates. New power is decentralized, but it requires some structural elements of the old power model to retain vigor. This fast-moving video conversation will enlighten leaders who are trying to unravel the dynamics of the new power paradigm.
