Management and power

 Being in a position of senior management offers the opportunity for the exercise of power, and as we know, power corrupts. But why should it be so, and how can we protect ourselves, and our colleagues from the adverse impacts of power poorly exercised?

It seems that as power increases without an equal balancing force, active regulation, or my preference because the regulators by default also have power , transparency, the normal person starts to lose the perspective that comes from accountability for their actions. They start to dismiss the behaviors that led to them being considered for the senior position in the first place, a paradox of power that is as old as human society.
