How to Understand Power – TED Ed

Every day, we move and operate within systems of power that other people have constructed. But we’re often uncomfortable talking about power. Why? Eric Liu describes the six sources of power and explains how understanding them is key to being an effective citizen.

From writer, educator, and civic entrepreneur Eric Liu and TED Ed, this is How to Understand Power: where it comes from, how it’s exercised, and what you can do to be more powerful in public life.

Next: I Will Be A Hummingbird, a story from Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai.
