What is it like to have an experience of power? Guided by Edmund Husserl's phenomenology, this book provides a unique look into the phenomenon of power. While the literature offers a wealth of information about power from the historical, political and sociological realms, relatively no research detailing the lived experience of power for women exists. Given the ubiquitous nature of power, this descriptive phenomenological study sought to understand the experience of power for women in formal leadership positions through the Chief Academic Officer position in women's colleges and universities in the United States. With women holding leadership positions all over the world, this study is significant and compelling because it brings practitioners and scholars more than a definition of power-it makes explicit the meaning of power for women. A must read for all human resource development professionals, academicians, organizational leaders, administrators, and managers. The essence of power is articulated through rich details, which illustrate the embedded complexity of power. The nuances will captivate you and draw you into reflecting upon your own embodied experience of power.

This book explores the concept of power and emotion. The book begins by examining the conceptual problems and issues associated with theorizing power drawing from classical, modern and contemporary social science perspectives. It moves to assess the issues of power elites and relationship to how society is governed. To further examine, this attention moves to global power and the impact that has on power, politics and decision making processes. The book explores power and communication drawing from critical theory and the possibilities for social change. Finally, the book explores the power of emotion and its differential and contested understanding requires a new appropriation of linking what C. Wright Mills calls 'personal troubles' and 'public issues'.
